Batteries have been around for 2000 years, but still have a lot of room for improvement. Why aren’t modern batteries better?

Why Does Cold Weather Drain Your Phone Battery?
“Lithium-ion batteries, the commonplace rechargeables that power much of our modern lives and live inside almost every cellphone, discharge electric current as individual lithium ions move through solution from one end of the battery (the anode) to the other end (the cathode). ”
Effect Of Temperature On The Aging Rate Of Li Ion Battery Operating Above Room Temperature
“Temperature is known to have a significant impact on the performance, safety, and cycle lifetime of lithium-ion batteries (LiB). However, the comprehensive effects of temperature on the cyclic aging rate of LiB have yet to be found.”
Solid electrolytes open doors to solid-state batteries
“Japanese scientists have synthesized two crystal materials that show great promise as solid electrolytes. All-solid-state batteries built using the solid electrolytes exhibit excellent properties, including high power and high energy densities, and could be used in long-distance electric vehicles.”
