Its creators say SiliconX could be the answer to higher capacity lithium-ion batteries

For years, scientists have seen silicon as a hugely promising material in the world of lithium-ion batteries. The primary reason for this is that using it as the anode could mean batteries with 10 times the capacity of current versions – at least in theory. But in reality, it easily breaks apart as the battery goes through its charging cycles. Scientists at Norway's Institute for Energy Technology are now claiming to have overcome this problem with a new material they call SiliconX.
