Tech expert unveils new battery to challenge lithium-ion

(Image of a “drive and ride” plug-in station in Ontario, Canada. Courtesy of Energy Trends) The rise of electric vehicles and the quest to find solutions to energy storage for the renewables industry have created a breeding ground for tech experts to develop battery technologies. Last week, Sun Microsystems co-founder Bill Joy and the company […]

Latest long-lasting ‘battery’ can charge in seconds, doesn’t degrade

If this battery breakthrough makes it beyond testing, waiting for your smartphone to charge up could be a thing of the past. This tiny, flexible supercapacitor can charge in seconds. Image: University of Central Florida Scientists have developed a method for creating small, flexible supercapacitors that could mean blisteringly fast charging times and more reliable […]

Solar-powered smart outdoor pole keeps commuters powered-up and surfing

The Mito was designed by Art Lebedev studio at the request of Verisun Smartphones have made it easier than ever to keep occupied while commuting, but all it takes is a dead battery to make for a tedious waiting game. A recently installed piece of street furniture in the Turkish city of Istanbul, however, lets […]

Using Hydrogen To Enhance Lithium Ion Batteries

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory scientists have found that lithium ion batteries operate longer and faster when their electrodes are treated with hydrogen. Lithium ion batteries (LIBs) are a class of rechargeable battery types in which lithium ions move from the negative electrode to the positive electrode during discharge and back when charging. The growing demand […]

CHARGING YOUR MOBILE CELL PHONE IN SECONDS SHOWN IN THIS YOU TUBE VIDEO

DO YOU WANT TO CHARGE YOUR MOBILE PHONE BATTERY IN SECONDS? THEN HERE IT IS. Henry Sapiecha

MOBILE PHONE CHARGED BY GOING FOR A WALK IN THE PARK,EASY AS SAY INVENTORS…

CHARGING YOUR MOBILE PHONE JUST BY WALKING Exercise in good science: Dr Thomas McKay and Iain Anderson are trying to harness electricity from your running shoes as you work out. Charging your mobile phone battery may soon be little more than a walk in the park. The Auckland Bioengineering Institute’s Biomimetics lab has built electric […]

ARE WE AT THE TRESHOLD OF SUPERFAST BATTERY CHARGING??

THE NEVER ENDING PROBLEM OF SLOW CHARGING BATTERIES COULD WELL BE AT AN END SOON Yes there are criticisms of electric vehicles, probably the most commonly-heard is that their batteries take far too long to recharge – after all, limited range wouldn’t be such a big deal if the cars could be juiced up while […]

CHARGING YOUR BATTERY IN MINUTES OR SECONDS NOW POSSIBLE

CHARGING YOUR BATTERY IN ONLY MINUTES IS POSSIBLE A diagram of a lithium-ion battery constructed using Braun’s nanostructured bicontinuous cathode (left), and a scanning electron microscope image of the nanostructure (right) (Image: Paul Braun, University of Illinois) Of all the criticisms of electric vehicles, probably the most commonly-heard is that their batteries take too long […]

DEVICES USE SCANVENGED ENERGY FROM THE AIR WE BREATHE TO POWER THEM

Breath & air-powered for non-existent batteries Lithium-air batteries are currently in the works, and IBM predicts that batteries “that use the air we breath to react with energy-dense metal” will result in smaller, lighter rechargeable batteries that last ten times longer than today’s lithium-ion types. Whilst such batteries could be used in everything from cars […]
