Flash Battery publishes solid-state battery paper

By Roberta Prandi11 April 2022

Flash Battery, a leading Italian manufacturer of li-ion batteries, has published a paper covering developments in solid-state battery technology.

While Flash Battery is convinced of the current advantages of lithium-ion batteries for industrial and off-highway vehicles, the company is also monitoring advances in other technology areas, including solid-state batteries.

The paper explains what solid-state batteries are and how they work, especially in comparison with lithium-ion batteries.

The authors also explore the advantages of this technology, together with limitations which are still being studied. It is these limitations which are delaying entry of the tech into the market.

Based on current studies, solid-state batteries promise many improvements over existing batteries: solid electrolytes seem to offer greater energy density, a longer life and greater safety, all in a smaller size.

But Flash Battery also underlines how this technology is still in the development phase and, to date, lithium-ion batteries remain the best performing technology on sale, with a variety of chemistries, each used for different purposes, readily available and mass produced.
