Silicon Anode Batteries

Silicon anode batteries have now replaced Li-ion or lithium-ion batteries that utilized lithium as their anode material. Silicon has more than ten times the amount of energy density compared to graphite anodes and allows for quicker charging rates. It is therefore a desirable material for anode batteries and its use has been widely researched. Silicon does, however, face challenges with its expansion tendency when used in anode batteries. This is the reason silicon anode batteries have not been widely used in commercial applications up until now.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Silicon Anode Batteries

SMBs can greatly benefit from the improved performance and productivity of silicon anode batteries. Silicon anodes can largely help improve battery performance owing to their lithium storage capacity that enables the batteries to enjoy larger efficiencies.
