Endurance and operation of ionic liquid lithium secondary battery in space successfully addressed without anti-vacuum reinforcements
The ionic liquid lithium secondary battery developed by Professor Masashi Ishikawa and Associate Professor Masaki Yamagata of Kansai University (Suita City, Osaka, President: Harushige Kusumi) was placed in orbit around the Earth. Subsequently, it became the first ionic liquid battery to be successfully charged and discharged in orbit, followed by a successful long-period charging and discharging test.
