About Lithium-Sulfur Batteries
Recently I read an article about Lithium-Sulfur batteries (https://doi.org/10.3390/wevj9020034). This is a candidate successor to lithium-ion because of a higher energy density (theoretically x5 times higher).
Nevertheless, they show some characteristics we are no longer used to see since Li-ion batteries:
- Very high self-discharge
- Capacity recovery effect
In my opinion, these are signs of poor reversibility of Li-S compared to Li-ion.
