Move Aside Lithium – Vanadium Is The New Super-Metal
Posted by BFP Staff on Oct 11, 2018 at 10:20 PM
Vanadium is superior to lithium in every way. Not only does it have eternal life, it's not explosive, flammable or toxic.

The lithium ride was a great one. Cobalt, too. All they needed was their Elon Musk moment, which came in the form of the Nevada battery gigafactory. The next Elon Musk moment won’t be about lithium at all—or even cobalt. It will be for an element that takes everything electric to its revolutionary finish line: Vanadium.
The one moment that will change everything … and that moment may be near.
Vanadium is lithium on steroids—wildly bigger and the only way forward from here. We may have already reached the peak of our electric revolution through batteries with lithium.
We need bigger batteries, preferably the size of a football field—or 20.
That’s vanadium—Element 23. The answer to our issue of scale.
