Nickel–lithium battery

The nickel–lithium battery, also known as Ni–Li, is an experimental battery using a nickel hydroxide cathode and lithium anode. The two metals cannot normally be used together in a battery, as there are no electrolytes compatible with both. The LISICON design uses a layer of porous glass to separate two electrolytes in contact with each metal. The battery is predicted to hold more than three and a half times as much energy per pound as lithium-ion batteries, and to be safer. However, the battery will be complex to manufacture and durability issues have yet to be resolved.[1]
