New polymer battery technology with the advantages of being safer and up to 90% cheaper than li-ion batteries will be mass produced early next year.

>> New battery technology doubles electric vehicle range

Technology lovers may not have to wait too much longer before a new battery technology is launched to replace outdated lithium-ion batteries.

According to sources from JapanTimes, “battery industry legend” Hideaki Horie plans to create a battery made entirely from polymer material, with a cost up to 90% cheaper than lithium-ion while still ensuring performance.

The breakthrough of this technology lies in the metal-coated electrode and liquid electrolyte. Specifically, the battery making process allows 10-meter-long panels to overlap to increase capacity. More importantly, this flexible plastic battery does not catch fire when punctured.

Easily flammable, leading to fires and explosions, is also a disadvantage of lithium-ion batteries that makes people always want to replace this technology. In fact, there have been so many accidents that the battery industry always puts safety first.

It can be recalled that the scandal of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phone line in 2016 was also related to an incorrectly designed battery, leading to many incidents leading to fires and explosions. This caused the product to have tragically low sales, and was forced to be removed from the market.

Hideaki Horie – a person known as “battery industry legend” for his contributions. In the near future, Horie will research and mass produce polymer batteries to reduce dependence on current battery technology.

Hideaki Horie is no longer a strange name, known as a former employee of Nissan Motor with a master’s degree in physics and many years of experience in manufacturing batteries.

In the early 2000s, he had the idea of developing polymer batteries to replace lithium-ion batteries, but did not receive enough support to make it a reality.

Of course, the complete replacement of lithium-ion batteries is still in the very distant future, possibly lasting up to 15 years or more. This is what Menahem Anderman, president of Total Battery Consulting, confirmed.
