Investigating battery failure

From mobile phones to electric vehicles, Li-ion batteries are ubiquitous in today’s society. However these devices have been known to fail, sometimes in spectacular fashion, as seen recently in the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphone recall. Now in a paper published in Energy and Environmental Science a team of researchers have investigated the nature of this failure in an effort to improve safety and reliability of Li-ion batteries.
