New battery technology has been unveiled that could prove to be the missing l ink automakers need to take electric vehicles like the Tesla model S to the masses. The new battery tech is called St Andres Air or STAIR battery and is charged in traditional ways.

However, as the power inside the battery is used an open air mesh section draws in oxygen from the air around the battery and helps to continually recharge the battery cell. The batter is also much lighter than current batteries because it replaces lithium cobalt oxide with porous carbon and oxygen from the air.

A lighter battery translates into better performance and more mileage for electric cars. The battery has a higher storage capacity and can emit power up to 10 times longer than standard batteries.
