'New manufacturing approach slices lithium-ion battery cost in half'

<blockquote>'Reinventing how these batteries are made also improves their performance and recyclability.


In addition to streamlining manufacturing enough to cut battery costs by half, Chiang says, the new system produces a battery that is more flexible and resilient. While conventional lithium-ion batteries are composed of brittle electrodes that can crack under stress, the new formulation produces battery cells that can be bent, folded or even penetrated by bullets without failing. This should improve both safety and durability, he says.'
