A team of scientists and engineers from Honda Research, Cal Tech and JPL reports that they have demonstrated a better FIB or Fluoride-Ion Battery. The new FIB prototype operates efficiently at room temperature, whereas previous FIBs required operating temperatures that topped 300 degrees. (300F or 300C..? This report does not say.)

And it's "greener." The raw materials can be extracted more easily and with less environmental impact than the lithium and cobalt used in the Lithium Ion or Li-ion batteries that are commonplace in the Electric Vehicles (EVs) of today.

The team thinks that this new and improved FIB technology could lead to batteries that deliver a tenfold increase in driving range, compared to comparably-sized EV and Li-ion battery designs that are on the road today.

So it is said by Dr Christopher Brooks, of the Honda Research Institute.

Except for the word "Telling"...

I thought that my Topic or thread title might be dissed--to use a seemingly out of date term--as "corny." Or "stale."

There is another report that is about the same length (short) but it's a better writeup. The last paragraph is really a "smasher"... it references "tetraalkylammonium fluoride", "core-shell nanostructure" and "lanthanum."
