To significantly improve the current lithium battery performance, some scientists believe that the introduction of lithium metal as an anode component may be a feasible method. A "dream material" proposed by researchers at Washington State University (WSU) could replace the current negative electrode material, boosting the development of lithium batteries. As it turns out, wanting to integrate lithium batteries safely into the device still faces some challenges.
