Battery is the base of modern society. A lot of our devices, ranging from smartphones to electric vehicles, rely on batteries as the power supply. However, batteries always have had an Achilles heel — a risk of explosion. One of the largest battery manufacturers, BAK, has unveiled its latest blast-resistant semi-solid state batteries! Here, we will be discussing these batteries further.
