Charging Ahead: Carbon Nanotubes Could Hold Long-Sought Battery Technology Breakthrough

In the drive to devise more efficient and durable batteries, one promising option uses carbon nanotubes, which not only can store far more electricity by weight than lithium ion batteries but also retain their charge for a much longer time.

University of Maryland scientists have created nanostructures able to store and transport power at 10 times the energy density of lithium-ion batteries.
