Electric car battery with 600 miles of range? This startup claims to have done it

  • The company claims to have made the world's first 1,000 Wh/kg rechargeable battery.
  • "It's a big jump," Innolith chairman Alan Greenshields said in an interview with The Verge .
  • Most current electric cars are powered by "wet" lithium-ion batteries, which use liquid electrolytes to move energy around.
  • Innolith still uses "wet" liquid electrolytes in its lithium-ion batteries, but there's one major difference: the company replaces the organic (and highly flammable) solvent containing the electrolytes with an inorganic substance that's more stable and less flammable.
