A California startup called Amprius sells a new type of anode for lithium-ion batteries. These anodes are made from silicon nanowires.

According to the company, this anode will provide more autonomy to both electric vehicles as mobile devices, allowing storing a charge 10 times higher than that of graphite, which is currently used.
