Trevor Jackson, a UK-based ex-naval officer and now an inventor, claims to have invented a new aluminium-air battery (different from the standard lithium-ion battery) which he says has a 2400 km range on a single charge.
As you can imagine, this is a massive jump from the 300 km range as promised in many expensive top-tier electric cars with li-ion batteries. And aluminium happens to be one of the most abundantly available elements on the planet.
The inventor says that it weighs lesser and occupies lesser space as compared to li-ion batteries and is also non-hazardous and recyclable. Sound too good to be true? Guess we’ll have to wait and watch.
