Nail Test on 4.0 Volt Aqueous Battery (video) Cell Press Share Print E-Mail Loading video... Caption This video shows how when punctured repeatedly with a nail, a four-volt aqueous lithium-ion battery initially maintains its voltage, and no fire, smoke, or explosion occurs. This contrasts with the instantaneous short-circuit and explosive risk of an analogous non-aqueous battery. Credit Yang et al. Usage Restrictions Credit Required.
