Bloomberg reported that amid the problems rechargeable lithium ion batteries have been creating recently, the International Business Machines Corp. (IBM) plans to create a prototype battery it calls “lithium air,” which could hopefully find a solution to fire and heating problems.

As quoted in the market news:

The first step was for scientists to demonstrate the technology can store and release power through 10 charges. Now they’re pushing the unit to work over hundreds of cycles, and build a prototype. That would require further improvements in the materials used for the cathodes, anodes and electrolytes, which form the guts of batteries, Narayan said.
