Exploding Batteries to be Thing of Past

According to a report from Gizmodo, researchers from Layden Energy has come up with a new type of battery that uses a different type of salt.

This salt is more heat resistant, and does not react with moisture to produce Hydrochrolic acid, the thing that does most of the damage.

The report didn't mention when this technology would be available, but once it does, it could mean the end of Li-Ion batteries, which in turn brought about the demise of NiMH batteries.

The side benefit of such batteries also mean that last much longer than Li-Ion batteries because they maintain their charge capacity for more than three years.
