Scientists with the Department of Energy have designed a new type of battery that they say outpaces the ubiquitous lithium-ion batteries in flammability, cost, and ability to hold a charge.
Nissan boosts the zero-emissions range of the 2016 Leaf to the head of the class by cramming in a bigger battery.
Researchers at Virginia Tech have developed a working sugar-powered fuel cell with energy density greater than that of current lithium-ion batteries.
The Powerwall for homes and Powerpack for businesses can store energy from solar panels and help you save on energy bills.
With elements seemingly borrowed from other GoPro accessories including the company's own battery-integrated pole mount, the PowerGrip H2O packs in a lot of usability.
At next month's Tokyo Motor Show, Honda will show its next-gen fuel-cell car, which will go head-to-head with Toyota's Mirai. It will also show an autonomous mobility concept and new motorcycles.
Engineers at the University of California at Riverside explore how batteries made with mushrooms could be cheaper to make and less prone to degrading over time.
Stanford researchers may have discovered a path to pure lithium batteries, which would mean lighter, smaller, and more powerful charges for our devices. The science of it is pretty dense; but if we don't need to find plugs for our phones anymore while we're out and about? We're in.
Today's show features some enterprising hackers who modded an ATM to play Doom, Stanford researchers discovering a potential path to a viable, pure lithium battery, and some mind-bending 360-degree video art.
Much cheaper, longer-range electric cars are on the way if Japan's Sekisui Chemical claims are realized in 2015.
