Lithium batteries could be set for a performance boost, thanks to a new current collector designed by scientists in the US

Battery researchers are continually experimenting with alternative materials in an effort to boost performance, and a group from Stanford University and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory is claiming to have landed on a winner. The team has redesigned the current collector component of lithium-ion batteries in a way that greatly reduces their weight, making them not only more efficient but also more resistant to fires.
