Lithium-ion batteries are used in laptops, desktops, notebooks, desk computers and mobile devices, but they are not always well protected.
In fact, the problem is getting worse.
This new research from the University of Waterloo and a few other universities shows how researchers can fix this problem.
The research, titled Lithium Plating for Your Computer’s Hard Drive, is a collaborative project between the University, McMaster University and University of Western Ontario.
The University of McMaster and McMaster are part of the Waterloo network of centres for research and development.
The project is a collaboration between McMaster and Waterloo.
“It’s a great collaboration and we’re very happy to be part of it,” said lead researcher J.J. Johnson.
“We’re excited to be able to bring the research to bear on the next generation of lithium-ion battery.”
The problem with lithium-ionic batteries is that they use an ionic form of the metal.
This means that when you charge a battery, you’re using an ionized form of that metal.
In theory, this would mean that there would be less oxidation or damage when the battery is recharged.
In reality, this isn’t always the case.
In certain situations, the battery may need to be recharged in a manner that doesn’t involve the ionization of the cathode, or it may be used in an environment that is not suitable for ionizing.
“The problem is that in some cases the battery can be recharging with a lot of oxidation in it,” Johnson said.
“So when the oxidation is in the cathodes, the lithium ions that are stored there can migrate into the electrolyte.
So you’ve got the potential for some really bad things.”
When the oxidation occurs, the electrons of the lithium ion travel to the negative electrode, which has a negatively charged state.
In other words, the charge on the catholes will be negative.
This causes the negative charge on that cathode to go negative.
The result is that the battery will start to oxidize.
The solution to this problem is to use a form of Lithium Oxide, which is a very thin and very stable form of lithium.
Lithium oxide is used in battery electrodes because it is easier to charge than other forms of lithium and can be made into the desired battery electrodes in a matter of minutes.
The University of Saskatchewan’s Robert Langridge was one of the lead researchers of the project.
“Lithium oxide has been around for decades, but there has been a lack of commercial production in this form,” Langridge said.
Langridge’s lab is a leading lithium-metal battery research centre.
The research is part of their collaborative program called Li-Ming and Lithium.
“There are a lot more companies that are trying to develop battery technology,” he said.
The company that has developed the technology is called Energe.
Langridge believes that the success of the work done in the lab is the reason Energes work so well.
“If we had been able to produce these electrodes in high volumes, then we would have had to make these electrodes much more quickly and that would have caused a lot less of this kind of oxidation,” he explained.
“And the way we have made these electrodes, we’ve taken the process of manufacturing and we’ve applied the same process to our production processes.”
The research was funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the Canadian Research Council.
