One of the inventors of the modern lithium-ion battery, John Goodenough, and a team of researchers claim to have invented a new solid state battery. But is it too good to be true?

New Batteries Could Last a Decade With Minimal Upkeep
"The batteries are designed to store wind and solar energy for later use. They're non-toxic, non-corrosive and could significantly reduce the cost of production."

Lithium-Ion Battery Inventor Introduces Fast-Charging, Noncombustible Batteries
"A team of engineers led by 94-year-old John Goodenough, professor in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin and co-inventor of the lithium-ion battery, has developed the first all-solid-state battery cells that could lead to safer, faster-charging, longer-lasting rechargeable batteries for handheld mobile devices, electric cars and stationary energy storage."

BU-204: How do Lithium Batteries Work?
"Lithium is the lightest of all metals, has the greatest electrochemical potential and provides the largest specific energy per weight. Rechargeable batteries with lithium metal on the anode could provide extraordinarily high energy densities; however, it was discovered in the mid-1980s that cycling produced unwanted dendrites on the anode. These growth particles penetrate the separator and cause an electrical short. The cell temperature would rise quickly and approach the melting point of lithium, causing thermal runaway, also known as 'venting with flame.'"

Has lithium-battery genius John Goodenough done it again? Colleagues are skeptical
"Researchers have struggled for decades to safely use powerful-but flammable-lithium metal in a battery. Now John Goodenough, the 94-year-old father of the lithium-ion battery, is claiming a novel solution as a blockbuster advance. If it proves out, the invention could allow electric cars to compete with conventional vehicles on sticker price. The improbable solution, described in a new paper from Goodenough and three co-authors, has drawn intense interest from leading science and technology publications."
