The Next Five Innovative Battery Technologies: Lithium Battery Has A Large Environmental Protection Space

- Sep 11, 2017-

Chinese energy storage network: according to foreign media reports, the battery has been integrated into our daily life, electric car, flashlight, remote control, it seems that our lives are already separated from batteries.Fortunately, future batteries are moving in a sustainable direction, and we have compiled a list of five examples of future innovative battery technology for your readers. Here are the following:

1. New battery powered by human skin

Smart wearable devices, such as smart wristwatches, bluetooth headsets and smart clothing, are becoming more popular, and the devices can track and record the user's breathing, heart rate and other body parameters.To solve the power supply problem of these wearable devices, researchers are working on a battery that attaches electrodes to the user's skin.

Currently, the innovative battery is being tested.When the finger taps the skin, the amount of electricity it produces can light up 12 LED bulbs.It is worth mentioning that the current on the electrode can capture the skin, its gold membrane layer thickness of 50 nanometers, located in the silica gel layer below the line, which consists of many small pillars, thus increase the contact surface of the skin.

2. Quick filling technology

Not long ago, when the smartphone ran out of power, it meant that the user needed to plug in a charger and waited 30-60 minutes for the device to be charged.Some fast charging technologies now shorten charging speeds by a sixth of the speed of an earlier one.Qualcomm, for example, "5 for 5" the window of the innovation of the technology is "charging for five minutes, talking 5 hours", it aims at using Xiao godson piece of mobile phone and smart devices provide super quick charge service, not only greatly reduces the charging time, also to avoid the charge of waiting.In addition, the technology has slowed the use of electricity and reduced the amount of electricity required to pay.

3. Safer solid-state batteries

Researchers have developed a number of solid-state batteries, which lead the current widely used lithium-ion battery in many ways.In addition, solid-state batteries are more secure, longer-lasting and more powerful.This new type of rechargeable battery can be recharged hundreds of thousands of times, and the materials will be buried and processed after wear and tear.Solid-state batteries boost the amount of electricity by more than 30 percent, meaning it lasts longer after charging.Because solid-state rechargeable batteries are non-flammable, they are a great car battery for electric vehicles.

4.Lithium ion battery

Although solid-state batteries can provide all kinds of environmental protection, Visual industry thinks lithium-ion batteries can improve their environmental performance.It is estimated that the power of lithium-ion batteries will increase by 6% to 7% in the future, thanks to the continuous adjustment of the content of aluminum, cobalt, manganese and nickel in the cathode of li-ion batteries.The researchers conducted a series of experiments on the material, continuously exploring the optimum ratio of each material, extending the life of its cathode and improving its energy efficiency.At present, researchers are testing the silicon anode, which increases battery power by 10 times compared to the current graphite anode.

5. Flexible battery

Arizona State University (Arizona State University) research team inspired by Japanese origami, adopt a flexible energy storage technology, the research and development of lithium ion battery has a large number of fold and incisions (cuts), enhance the ductility of the battery and flexible.

The flexible battery is said to be an elastic wristband, one of the key components of a smartwatch.Due to the band's malleability, this extendable eurostar battery will be sewn into smart clothing.Smart wearable devices will eventually be powered by such batteries, which will cost less than conventional bulk batteries.
