LITHIUM--WATER--AIR BATTERY: A NEW CONCEPT FOR AUTOMOTIVE PROPULSION

The lithium battery described in this report represents a new class of batteries. A modification of this battery, the lithium--water--air battery, is also discussed. The latter provides high specific energy and specific power and thus is a candidate power source for electric vehicle propulsion. The utilization of this battery class for such a purpose is examined. The report includes other possible batteries in this class. (16 figures, 11 tables).
