American Lithium Energy Developing Safer Lithium-Ion Batteries
Jiang Fan, President and co-founder of American Lithium, a small San Diego company, believes that they have found the solution to lithium-ion battery fires, claiming that their batteries do not ignite into flames.
The technology, branded Safe Core, stems from a U.S. Department of Energy project with the goal of producing batteries for high-energy electric vehicles that won't explode or catch fire amidst a car crash. Fan has not released many details yet, but with rapidly a growing market for electric vehicles and portable battery technology, Safe Core, along with several startups and laboratories across the US, are designing new techniques that will lead to safer batteries for all of us.
