Nokia Scientists Work on the ‘Battery of the Future’

Developers of electronic devices face many challenges, one of them is the creation of equipments with an excellent power usage and powerful enough to support new technologies such as a 5G, artificial intelligence or augmented reality. But, have they done it? Not yet!

We have to emphasize the ‘yet’ because they are working on that. In fact, a recent article published by Tekcrispy explains that a group of scientists from Nokia Bell Labs, together with other research centers, are developing a battery capable of lasting 2.5 times more than the small conventional ones.

The project’s name is ‘Electrodes of High Capacity Battery in Prepared Areas by a Segregated Nanotubes Networks’, and is described as a system which increases the energy storage capacity of lithium batteries. How? This is the experts describe it:

Here we show the composition of segregated networks of carbon nanotubes with a series of lithium storage materials (silicon particles, graphite, and metal oxide) that suppress the mechanical instabilities when the compound hardens, allowing the making of high performance electrodes with a density up to 800 μm

According to scientists, the new battery electrodes are a compound of carbon nanotubes and lithium storage materials capable of transferring energy with tremendous efficiency, only in theory. This will make batteries charge faster and to fully use the physical space they occupy.

A revolutionary battery

The technology used in the battery by Nokia storages more energy through lithium nanotubes. It prevents a rising in the size of the component in exchange of bigger autonomy. That is a good thing because you can pack more energy in a smaller space. The new battery technology will have a tremendous impact with 5G, and in the worldwide network.

Tekcrispy explains in its articles that these new batteries will revolutionize connectivity. This is because they will be able to keep devices connected longer, due to their functions, such as drones, devices IoT, electric cars, industrials robots, and many more.
