Samsung develops EV battery ranges 800
A South Korean multinational conglomerate Samsung Electronics has announced that it has developed a solid-state battery technology that provides a range of electric vehicles of 500 miles (800 km) on a single charge. The battery which is developed for electric vehicles has a life cycle of over 1,000 charges.

The company noticed that the technology is half the size of a conventional lithium-ion battery which is achieved by decreasing the anode thickness.
The company said in a statement “The prototype pouch cell that the team developed would enable an EV to travel up to 800 kilometres on a single charge and features a cycle life of over 1,000 charges.”
The Samsung researchers in South Korea and Japan carried out the study. The new battery developed is fire resistant as it uses solid materials and no toxic chemicals have been added. It is having energy densities up to 2.5 the times as its counterpart.
“The product of this study could be a seed technology for safer, high-performance batteries of the future,” I’m Dong-min, who led the project, said in a statement.
The team discovered that incorporating a silver-carbon layer into a prototype pouch cell enabled the battery to support a larger capacity, a longer cycle life and improves its overall safety.
“Going forward, we will continue to develop and refine all-solid-state battery materials and manufacturing technologies to help take EV battery innovation to the next level.”
As electric vehicles industry is developing every day many electronic companies in the world are in competition to create a suitable ( small and powerful) battery for electric vehicles such as electric cars. Seems like Samsung is winning the race, as it is a prototype, the market-ready prototype will take time for commercial use.
