Hitachi Zosen has developed a solid-state battery boasting one of the industry's highest capacities and tolerance for a wide range of temperatures, making it a candidate for use in satellites and industrial machinery.

The high-performance solid-state battery, unveiled Wednesday at an exhibition in Tokyo, features a capacity of 1,000 milliamp hours -- roughly seven times as much as the Japanese company's prior models. It can also operate in a temperature range from 100 degrees to minus 40 degrees Celsius.
