John Goodenough, co-inventor of the lithium-ion battery, has a new product in the works. The 94 year old has developed a new formula for solid-state batteries offering three times more power.

According to Fortune, Goodenough and his team's new battery promises to charge quickly, never explode, and perform well at low temperatures.

Still in the early stages of development, the battery - which replaces a liquid electrolyte with glass - removes any risk of explosion seen in lithium-ion due to the aging technology growing metal strands that can cause short circuits.
