Tesla-beating battery discovery could finally give us QUIET electric planes – reducing both noise and CO2 pollution

A breakthrough in PIN could lead to electric planes that produce significantly less pollution and noise.

Researchers in Japan have created a world-leading battery that achieves a density more than twice that of a Tesla battery.

The electric planes that exist today are very small because we don't have batteries that are light but powerful enough to power long-haul flights.

This means that the battery can be small but provide a lot of power.

It could be a breakthrough for electric aircraft because the battery will be light enough for the plane to fly while still providing enough power for long-distance travel.

The NIMS lithium-air battery has an energy density of 500Wh/kg.

Elon Musk’s Tesla cars have lithium-ion batteries, but they have an energy density of 260Wh/kg.

The new battery could also be used in smaller devices.

It is said to be safe for household use as it can be charged and discharged at normal temperatures.

ONE Released by NIMS claims that the battery “shows the highest energy density and best life cycle performance ever achieved”

It also states: “Lithium-air batteries have the potential to be the ultimate rechargeable battery: they are lightweight and high-capacity, with a theoretical energy density several times that of current lithium-ion batteries. Yes.”

The researchers will now conduct new experiments on the battery to see if its life cycle can be significantly increased.

Electric planes already exist, but they are small and cannot carry many people over long distances.

Long-haul electric aircraft can help significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

They can also make air travel a lot quieter.

Without the energy to burn the fuel, the plane would make less noise.

Currently, many airports have to be built in low-population areas because of noise pollution problems.

Airplane noise is currently a major barrier to airport expansion.
