Overheating lithium ion batteries have led to a number of exploding gadgets in recent years, but now researchers have come up with a way to douse the problem with a dose of nanotechnology.
Buying a self-balancing scooter? You might want to think twice.
Yes, there's always that chance your hoverboard will catch fire, but at least you can ease your mind a bit with a special bag designed to keep the potential flames from spreading.
Repair website iFixit tears apart a Swagway and its charger and is pleasantly surprised.
Need a little more electricity in your life, but aren't ready for an EV? You've got options.
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.
With a 1,800mAh lithium polymer rechargeable battery housed tightly inside, the $59 Nomad Pod, due out in June, packs enough power for four complete charges of Apple Watch.
Researchers at Virginia Tech have developed a working sugar-powered fuel cell with energy density greater than that of current lithium-ion batteries.
Much cheaper, longer-range electric cars are on the way if Japan's Sekisui Chemical claims are realized in 2015.
