Industry Experts Claim Lithium-Ion Batteries Have Fundamental Flaw
Lithium-ion batteries are used almost everywhere nowadays, but the recent recalls of them by top makers like Matsushita/Panasonic, Sony Corp. and Sanyo Corp. indicate that something is wrong with their manufacturing, industry experts believe. The battery specialists claim that fabrication process for those batteries needs to be altered to ensure their safe operation.
“There is a fundamental flaw with the way lithium-ion batteries are currently designed and if the companies genuinely care about safety, they need to completely change their production methods. A lithium-ion battery is quite a dangerous little box of energy,” Masataka Wakihara, of the Tokyo Institute of Technology, who advises the Japanese Government on battery safety, is reported to have said in an interview with The Times.
