A team of engineers led by 94-year-old John Goodenough, professor in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin and co-inventor of the lithium-ion battery, has developed the first all-solid-state battery cells that could lead to safer, faster-charging, longer-lasting rechargeable batteries for handheld mobile devices, electric cars and stationary energy storage.--UTNEWS
John Goodenought says, Cost, safety, energy density, rates of charge and discharge and cycle life are critical for battery-driven cars to be more widely adopted. We believe our discovery solves many of the problems that are inherent in today’s batteries.
People would find it as a bluff if any random person had claimed the invention of all-solid-state-battery. Goodenough being the pioneer and father of Lithium-ion battery, after this invention, people are saying that this could revolutionize the era with the hype of Electric cars and could challenge the automobile industry with the help of this invention.
