Recently, Tesla's battery research group in Canada and Dalhousie University's internationally renowned battery scholars jointly released a new paper on a new nickel-based battery, which can be used for up to 100 years.

The paper titled "Li[Ni0.5Mn0.3Co0.2]O2 as a Superior Alternative to LiFePO4 for Long-Lived Low Voltage Li-Ion Cells" has been published in the Journal of The Electrochemical Society.

The paper describes that a nickel-manganese-cobalt (NMC) battery paired with the electrolyte LiFSI can dramatically increase the battery's lifetime.

The research team found that the newly developed battery has a good capacity retention rate after repeated charging and discharging.

In addition, the paper also shows that the battery retains the characteristics of nickel-based batteries, such as higher energy density, thus providing longer range for electric vehicles.

As early as 2016, Tesla cooperated with the battery laboratory led by Jeff Dahn, an internationally renowned battery technology authority at Dalhousie University in Canada, and established "Tesla Advanced Battery Research".

The group has already made quite a few battery patents and papers for Tesla and has extended the cooperation contract until 2026.
