Smartphone Battery Lasting Twice Times

In these new lithium metal battery capacity has doubled from that store twice the energy density of lithium-ion ingredients, but the developers said that their technology is as safe as the same durable.
"With twice the energy density, we can do a half-size battery, but still the duration is the same as the lithium-ion batteries," SolidEnergy CEO Liang Hu Hu called Rob Matheson in Massachusetts Academy News. "Or we can make the same size of the lifePo4 batteries, but now it will last twice as long."
Hu Jintao, as researchers at MIT, founded SolidEnergy and make "no anode" battery target in 2012.
Electrodes used in lithium-ion rechargeable device most charging and discharging - -like solar powered portable generator. with a much thinner and lithium metal foil, which can accommodate more ions to replace it, so they just started the commercialization of additional graphite as an anode swapped out unit storage capacity.
When a smart phone, for example, the company's battery will be used in the iPhone 6 in half the size of the lithium ion battery, while providing a stronger current too - 2.0 Amps hour, compared to the iPhone 6 Battery 1.8 amperes hours.
Lithium metal has been the focus, because it can provide additional energy capacity of the battery of scientists, but significant roadblocks before now means it was never a serious option.
Previously, the lithium metal is prone to forming increased resistance in the battery, reducing the compound of component life cycle.
In the worst case, these classes of compounds - known as dendrites on the anode comprises a bump - causing charging problems, short circuit, flammable electrolyte battery which can burn or explode.
Hu's team to address these issues have been heated to function through the development of a lithium metal foil is not required, and is not flammable.
Foil, than traditional graphite anode several diluent - or a carbon or silicon, for that matter - can be chemically modified to prevent the kind of negative reaction, all conventional lithium metal battery easy.
But for lithium metal batteries of the most exciting it is how they are imminent. SolidEnergy that the first cell will hit the market in November this year, electricity UAVs.
"Some customers are using drones and balloons, providing free Internet access to developing countries, and for disaster relief survey," Hu told the MIT Xinwen. "This is a very exciting and noble applications."
In addition, the company said, smart phones and personal wearable device's battery should be from the beginning of 2017 - although it is unclear and may cooperate, so we can not determine what the equipment manufacturers on this point SolidEnergy brand and product battery will eventually open up (or possibly).
However, the world of smart phones and mobile devices, the greatest impact may be feeling a lot of equipment that is larger than the personal electronics.
Hu said that this battery technology allows electric cars are "a huge social impact," which is not surprising, considering how much more energy needed to move the car down than it is to drive your smart phone road (unless you 're playing big fuel Pokemon Go, of course).
"Industry standard electric cars need to go at least 200 miles on a single charge (322 square kilometers)," Hu explained. "We can make half the size and half the weight of the lifepo4 batteries, which will travel the same distance, or we can use it as the same size and weight, a charge will now go 400 miles (644 kilometers)."
Of course, we had to wait to see what equipment and vehicles included in the final SolidEnergy battery, but even just think stamina smartphone could double next year This is incredible. In other words, we can not wait.
