Solid State Battery

Electric vehicles are the way of the future. Petrol and diesel cars will be banned soon by many countries, but critics remain skeptical about the promised electric vehicle range, despite the fact that performance has improved tenfold. Some diesel models today claim to travel over 700 miles on a single tank of fuel.

The range of electric vehicles is still an issue that needs to be addressed if more people are to be encouraged to reduce their local emissions.

EVs currently get about 300 miles on a single charge, which is a big improvement but still a long way from the modern-day diesel/petrol vehicles, which can get more than double. Environmentalists used to love it because of its high MPG and low carbon emissions.

Samsung's advanced institute of technology:

Despite higher nitrous oxide emissions than petrol engines, they claim that a new chemical breakthrough would enable it to achieve twice the range of current digits.

The key is in the electrolyte used inside the cells; while traditional batteries use a liquid electrolyte or a polymer gel, these new technologies eliminate the liquid and substitute it with a solid electrolyte like ceramics, glass sulfites, or solid polymers.

Samsung scientists created this solid alternative, which is much denser than previous liquid-based approaches. It results in a more balanced and compact shape, also prevented the formation of dendrites, which are needle-like structures that reduce battery capacity over time.


Solid-state electrolytes come in a 25 variety of forms, including oxides, sulfides, phosphates, polyethers, polyesters, nitrile-based, polysiloxane, polyurethane, and others.


A battery pack of the same size will instantly double the existing range of an electric vehicle. The company claims that its lithium-ion batteries would have two to ten times the energy capacity of other lithium-ion batteries already existing. All of this contributes to a 1000 cycle life, which translates to over half a million miles.

Engineers have found a way to reduce the feared danger of batteries by eliminating the liquid component. Similar to fire risks, the exothermic reactions that occur within a battery produce a lot of heat, and as things heat up, they expand as well. Improved thermal efficiency also means less cooling and control components are needed.

Under the name Libtech, automakers Toyota, Honda, and Nissan have formed an all-Japanese consortium with the primary aim of realizing the manufacture of solid-state batteries. Volkswagen & Panasonic agrees that a decade is a fair time period for solid-state batteries to appear in electric vehicles.

Will be cost-effective?

They are costly to build, they are supposed to be less expensive to mass-produce than current lithium-ion batteries. However, for new technology to be implemented on large scale, the expenditure will be high, right? They're currently more difficult to scale up, and there's still a long way to go before solid-state manufacturing is ready for the current market. 

None can find any significant disadvantages so far. However, as previously said, work is still being done to secure the best solid material. We might see them (Solid State Batteries) implemented in cars we drive by the end of the decade. But that's owing to successful testing.

In the Bottom Line...

Instead of the liquid used in traditional lithium-ion batteries, solid-state batteries use a new solid form of an electrode that provides improved energy capacity, allowing current models to power up to twice their range, as well as lower internal resistance, corrosion, and wear, allowing for faster charging.

There is :

  • no leakage inside, which saves electricity
  • reduced chance of flammability
  • extended range. 

In the actual world, solid-state batteries are expected to last up to ten years, compared to the two years that we generally see battery degeneration begin.
