The revolution of the batteries is running

it is not always easy to be objective when it comes to a smartphone: some like a type of design and others not, some prefer TouchWiz while others prefer Android Stock, some want a very powerful smartphone while others want simply a device to talk on WhatsApp. Yet there is one area where users are unanimous: the autonomy of the smartphone is never enough and must absolutely be improved. A research in the United States offers a solution, while experimental at the moment, but very promising.

towards the end of lithium-ion batteries?

We know that the current batteries are lithium-ion type and that, until now, the only way to increase capacity is to increase the size of the battery. That is, more it is great and it is possible (at least in theory) to impose a big battery, but the screen is also bigger, consumption increased and profits are not really significant. Software optimization allows of course to improve autonomy but this has a certain limit.

A University of Florida has made a discovery that could create a real revolution in the field of electronic equipment: a type of battery that can store more energy and and work as on the first day after more than 30,000 refills! In practice, the researchers claim that it is not only possible to fully charge your smartphone in a few seconds, but also to have enough energy to hold at least a week.

best capacity and faster loading… but not for yet!

This isn’t immediately. The technology is far from simple and it will take quite a long time before it is fully tested, accessible and there probably although the production process is simplified. The material used is graphene which, by its nature, is very thin and heats extremely slowly, which is clearly an advantage. The key to the success of this type of battery is based on the technology: the tubes shaped avoids the problems that we see on the classical two-dimensional forms.

as well, thanks to this system, we will have a more stable system that can be reloaded more often. The nature of graphene also allow current to spread more easily, resulting for the user in a much faster reloading time.

Research Manager, Yeonwoong Jung, made it clear that the technology is not ready to be marketed, but that this study will have a “very big impact on many technologies”.
