From smartphones, cars, wearable technologies to portable computers, batteries welcome us. Especially the battery detail that stands out in the choice of smartphone; it affects preferences quite a lot.
This situation, which also attracts the attention of the researchers; to provide sustainable solutions for how to produce longer-lasting batteries for smartphones. Here’s the new battery technology developed by the Japanese.
Developing long-lasting phone battery: 1700 charging cycles
Most smartphone batteries, including models such as the flagship; the problem persists, as it has lost its original capacity in several years of use. However, researchers at the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST) found that; it turns out that the batteries have developed a material that helps them maintain their original capacity for at least five years (up to 95 percent).
Scientists at JAIST, led by Professor Noriyoshi Matsumi, have discovered a binding material that performs better than existing technology.
The negative terminals of the batteries used today have a binding material called Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF), which does not have high-level performance. After recharging only 500 times; Typical batteries using PVDF lose up to 35 percent of the original capacity. This leads to reduced battery life on smartphones after a year or two.
However, the new binding material is called Bis-imino-Asenaftenkinon-Paraphenylene (BP). The connector can maintain 95 percent of its battery capacity even after more than 1700 charging cycles. Thus, the battery can be used efficiently for up to five years without significantly losing its original capacity.
Matsumi says the new technology will help develop more durable products. In addition, the description goes on to explain that consumers of this technology, such as electric vehicles; he said he would encourage more to buy battery-based devices.
