Is there a real alternative for lithium for electric car batteries?
Instead of lithium-ion batteries, electric vehicles can also use magnesium-ion batteries. While these batteries have cathode and electrolyte similar to the ones in lithium-ion, they have different anodes. There are so many other options that are also used in it and they may include include:
- Nickel-zinc batteries
- Silicone-based batteries
- Sodium-metal batteries
- Solid-state batteries
