John Goodenough helped to develop the Lithium-Ion Battery. He and Maria Helena Braga are part of a team, which has designed a New Technology for High capacity, Fast-Charging and Noncombustible Batteries.
Such a battery could let one drive an electric car for up to 500 miles or more between battery charges. The battery could charge in the time it takes to order and eat a sandwich while drinking a cup of coffee at a roadside restaurant. The key safety feature is that the new battery design would not burst into flames if the battery is punctured
