A Nanoscale Peak at Lithium-air Batteries Promise Better Electric Vehicles

In this location, the lithium peroxide acts as resistance to the flow of electrons and handicaps the charging of batteries. However, the researchers also discovered that during charging, when the electrons are passing through the carbon nanotubes, the lithium peroxide particles that had formed during discharge began to shrink. This means that if electron transport for these batteries can be improved these batteries could be made to charge much more quickly than previously had been thought.
