New Lithium Ion Battery Shuts Down at High Temperatures (R&D Mag)

Stanford researchers have developed the first lithium-ion battery that shuts down before overheating, then restarts immediately when the temperature cools.  The new technology could prevent accidental fires, a problem in some technologies which rely on Lithium ion battery technology. For the battery experiment, the researchers coated the spiky nickel particles …
