Lithium-Ion vs. Lead Acid Batteries: Which is More Environmentally Friendly?

Several ways can be used in determining whether a product is eco-friendly or not. Li-ion batteries do not have dangerous materials, whereas lead-acid batteries contain such dangerous substances like lead. The two types of cells can be recycled though as of now it is the lead-acid batteries that are being recycled on a larger scale globally. However, considering the effect of these batteries on the environment and the amount of carbon produced should be essential than their lifespan. The frequent use of carbon materials leads to its accumulation; hence the following factors should always be put into consideration: The extraction…

How Electric Vehicles Can Help Rebuild the Auto Industry

2020 threw a curveball no one could have expected. Four months into the year, the country was seeing Depression Era levels of unemployment, and the situation has grown worse. With movement and commerce at an all-time low due to social distancing and self-isolation protocols, industries like food service and airline travel have suffered severe losses. The auto industry hasn’t been spared either, with domestic automakers seeing their sales plummet by nearly one half from a year ago in the first quarter of the year. However, as dire as the situation is, it presents a new opportunity. Most developed countries already…

What Could Happen If Batteries Outlasted the EVs They Power?

Electric cars are without a doubt the vehicles of the future. It has become clear just how much of a negative impact fossil fuels have on the environment, and phasing out internal combustion engines is one of the first steps towards achieving a green future. Not only do they run on clean energy, but they have zero emissions, something traditional vehicles can’t claim. One area both kinds of vehicles remain tied is in the range: most modern vehicles, whether electric or traditional, have an average maximum range of 200,000 miles. That may change soon, however, if a flurry of recent…

How Telematics Could Help Establish an EV Battery Standard

Electric vehicles have long left the realm of sci-fi and imagination for reality. In fact, plenty of developed governments are looking into phasing out internal combustion-engined vehicles in exchange for EVs over this decade in a bid to reduce their carbon footprints. Although the technology is fairly new, governments, automakers, and investors are dedicating millions of dollars to further develop and perfect EVs. However, one issue that has stood in the way of widespread EV adoption is the lack of an industry-wide EV battery standard. According to Shams Kanji, the manager of technical sales engineering at Morey, limited driving range,…

Your Questions About Charging an EV at Home, Answered

If you have ever thought about going green and switching to an electric car, you must have considered exactly how you would charge and recharge it. Unlike the nascent EV industry, combustion engine vehicles have been around for decades and the infrastructure needed to keep them running is basically sewn into the fabric of civilization. But, if you’re buying a sweet new electric car, there are fewer resources at hand, and you probably have a ton of questions about how you’ll charge it, especially at home. You may also be wondering how long it takes to fully charge an electric…

Australian Government Earmarks $3.5M to Lower EV Charging Costs

Like most developed countries, Australia is planning on phasing out internal combustion-engined vehicles in exchange for environmentally-friendly electric vehicles over the next decade. Back in 2019, the Labor Party revealed an “ambitious” plan to have 50% of all new car sales be EVs by 2030. At the time, the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (“FCAI”) said that “anything is possible” provided the required infrastructure and buyer incentives are made available. The Australian government has since committed $21 million in funding to public charging infrastructure through the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (“ARENA”). In June, Australian electric charging provider Jet Charge received…
