Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Currently, the rechargeable lithium-ion battery is generally considered to be the best battery for EVs, as a compromise between the advantages and drawbacks among various traditional battery candidates (e.g., fuel cells, solar cells, lead-acid, Ni-Cd and Ni-MH batteries). However, the application of lithium-ion battery is limited owing to some practical challenges such as high cost (e.g., lithium and cobalt raw resources), low energy/power density for high rate application, and intrinsic safety risk using organic electrolyte. Therefore, it is crucial to develop novel materials and technologies beyond the lithium-ion batteries with low price, high energy/power density, and reliable safety.

In this Special Issue, potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Sodium ion batteries;
  • Lithium sulfur batteries;
  • Metal air batteries;
  • Solid state batteries;
  • Supercapacitors;
  • Fuel cells.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Batteries is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
