The latest Lithium-Ion Technology Could Allow for A 10x Increase in Battery Life
Now the Researchers at Northwestern University are claiming to have developed a latest lithium-ion electrode that will previous ten times longer than present lithium-ion batteries. In a paper titled “In-Plane Vacancy-Enabled High-Power Si-Graphene compound Electrode for Lithium-Ion Batteries”, researchers document the work on the developments made to the present technology.
We have found a way to extend a new lithium-ion battery’s charge life by 10 times. Even after 150 charges, which would be one year or more of operation, the battery is still five times more effective than lithium-ion batteries on the market today. – Harold H. Kung Northwestern University
So, Nevermind the scientific talk when can we have it!? We really have no idea when consumers will see it, but at least we know there are individuals out there looking to help cause. Thunderbolt owners will be able to take pleasure in their devices for a much longer period of time before looking aimlessly on behalf of a charger.
