Vandium Boride
« on: October 07, 2008, 01:55:37 AM »
Has anyone heard of these vandium boride batteries???

Appearntly they recharge off oxygen or something like that...

Anyone have more information on vandium boride batteries?

Thanks just curious thought since it was not discussed I would bring to the members this topic to get some feedback on it.

Thanks Guys/Gals

For what I could find, they use oxygen to produce electricity, and must be recharged with special equipment when they deplete. They do have quite impressive energy density though, theoretically more than twice that of gas, but apparently it's not so much higher in practice. Still, usually electric systems don't come even close to that so I'm giving thumbs up for it.

There's also tech called vanadium redox battery, which is a flow battery that has only one electroactive element. They don't degrade over time like normal batteries and scale up incredibly well. They don't have nearly as high energy density as those vanadium boride batteries though.

Interesting I wonder just how enviormentally damaging these batteries are vs lead acid?

Special equipment is only special when it is new to market! It is the marketing ploy or should I say it is the lie that corperations use to make people pay for there R&D!!!

It is simply a new form of recharger nothing more nothing special about it really a circuit that recharges it ...

Unless of corse they have to place some highly toxic chemical in it or they are worried about the explosions like the lithium ions had ... And really it was just the media who escalated the isolated incidents with lithium ion ...

Bottom line is it is an interesting technology. I wonder the chemicals and process used as well as there toxicity ...

Could we make them at home out of our exsisting batteries simply using the chemicals and the proper charging system.

Curiosity but I think this technolgy may be of some importance.

Some articles, most web sources seem to paraphrase the same source.

By special I mean chemically treat to reduce the material back the energetic state. I haven't seen any specifics for the process, but I got the impression that it only comsumes energy and not produce waste. The second article briefly taks about similar lithium batteries with even higher energy densities. I don't think any of it is more toxic than current batteries.

Very nice...

Battery's that should be up and comming and running...

Vandium Boride
Lithium With Higher Energy Density
Hutchinson Batteries
EEStores Super Capacitor

These are important finds that should not be ignored and should be available to the general public for usage!


Thank you for the articles ...
