Nippon Shokubai, based in Osaka, Japan, has succeeded in improving the electrolyte performance for solid polymer batteries. 

Solid-state batteries using polymer electrolyte have features such as long life and high safety, but the polymer electrolyte has poor lithium ion conductivity so it is necessary to heat the battery to more than 50°C. 

The newly developed polymer electrolyte shows high lithium conductivity performance at near to room temperature, paving the way for new solid-polymer battery applications.
