2012-07-18 09:56:44

Most electric cars, from the Tesla Model S to the Nissan Leaf, run on rechargeable lithium-ion batteries — a pricey technology that accounts for more than half of the vehicle's total cost. One promising alternative is the lithium-sulfur battery, which can theoretically store five times more energy at a much lower cost. But lithium-sulfur technology has a major drawback: After a few dozen cycles of charging and discharging, the battery stops working. "The cycle life of...
