Lithium air batteries, also called breathing batteries, are designed to produce energy when lithium reacts with the oxygen in air. Previous attempts at making these batteries have been hindered by electrode clogging particles that form when the batteries discharge and also undesirable side reactions that cause damage to the batteries and limit their lifetime.
