Warren Buffet buys Duracell: Berkshire Hathaway Inc., one of the billionaire’s ventures, will acquire the battery maker for roughly three billion dollars. Rumour has it that the acquisition could be a play on EVs, as Berkshire Hathaway also holds a ten percent stake in Chinese car and battery maker BYD.

Multifunctional catalyst: A team from Technische Universität Berlin reports developing cobalt-manganese-based spinel microspheres as highly efficient multifunctional catalysts that unify the electrochemical oxygen evolution reaction (OER) with oxidant-driven and photocatalytic water oxidation as well as oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) in fuel cells and rechargeable metal-air batteries.

The vampire is back: Since the latest 6.0 software update for the Model S, the issue of the so-called vampire drain is haunting several Tesla owners again. Apparently, ‘sleep mode’ is not working and causes the car to lose power for about 13 miles per night when not plugged in.
