Las Vegas-based firm Bluetti, which specializes in manufacturing portable solar-powered generators, has developed the world's first sodium-ion solar generators. Aimed to serve as a replacement for lithium-ion batteries, these sodium-powered stations will be unveiled at the upcoming CES 2022 event in Las Vegas. According to the company, the product that is set to debut at the event is the NA300 sodium-ion generator along with the sodium-ion B480 battery pack to power the generator.
Why is this important?
The biggest advantage of using sodium over lithium is its abundance. The world has been facing an acute shortage of lithium as their demand for usage as batteries in electric vehicles and chips in technological devices has increased. Using batteries that run on sodium instead of lithium would significantly help in addressing the supply crunch. Another advantage that sodium offers over lithium is its cost-effectiveness. Since lithium is relatively not abundant, it requires a large investment for its detection, extraction, and refining which causes a massive jump in its costs. Sodium on the other hand is way too easily found as compared to lithium making it a relatively cheaper element. In addition to this, the properties of both sodium and lithium are similar to a large extent, which makes it the new go-to element.
