Modern society, the battery has been integrated into our daily life, electric cars, flashlights, remote control, it seems that our life has long been inseparable from the battery. Fortunately, the future of the battery is moving in the direction of sustainable development, Xiaobian finishing the five future innovation battery technology for readers to tasting, as follows:
1. New battery powered by human skin
Today, smart watches such as smart watches, Bluetooth headsets, and smart garments are becoming more popular, and the device can track and record the user's breathing, heart rate and other body parameters. To solve the power supply of the above-mentioned wearing equipment, researchers are developing a battery, the electrode used by the attached to the user's skin.
At present, this innovative battery is being tested. When the fingers tap the skin, the power generated can be lit 12 LED bulbs. It is worth mentioning that the electrode can capture the current on the skin, the gold film thickness of 50 nm, located in the silicone layer (silicone rubber layer) below, which is composed of many small columns, thereby increasing the skin Contact surfaces.
2. Quick-Charge Technology
Just before, if the power of the smartphone is exhausted, it means that the user needs to plug in the charger for the phone and wait 30-60 minutes for the device to be fully charged. Today, some fast charging technology can shorten the charge rate to the previous one-sixth. For example: Qualcomm "5 for 5" innovative technology is the highlight of the "five minutes charging, call 5 hours", which aims to use Xiaolong chip mobile phones and intelligent devices to provide ultra-fast charging service, not only significantly reduced the charging time, But also to avoid waiting when charging. In addition, the technology also slows electricity consumption and reduces the required electricity bill.
3. A more secure solid state battery
Researchers have developed several solid-state batteries, the product in many ways leading the current widely used lithium-ion battery. In addition, the solid-state battery is more secure, longer life, more powerful power. This new rechargeable battery can be charged hundreds of thousands of times, and other materials after the landfill wear and tear. Solid-state battery to make electricity more than 30%, which means that after charging, the use of longer time. As the solid-state rechargeable batteries are non-flammable, the electric car, is a class of excellent car battery.
4. Lithium-ion battery
Although solid-state batteries can provide a variety of environmental protection features, but Visual Capitalist company believes that lithium-ion battery in the improvement of environmental protection space is larger. It is estimated that the future of lithium-ion battery power will grow 6% -7%, which benefited from the lithium-ion battery cathode aluminum, cobalt, manganese, nickel and other metal content of the continuous adjustment. Researchers carried out a large number of tests on the above materials, continue to explore the best ratio of the material, so that the extension of the life of the cathode, while enhancing its energy efficiency. At present, the researchers are testing siliceous anodes, compared to the current use of graphite anode, the material so that the battery power increased by 10 times.
5. Flexible battery
Arizona State University's research team is inspired by Japanese origami technology, using a flexible energy storage technology, its research and development of lithium-ion battery has a lot of folds and cuts (cuts), enhanced battery ductility and Flexible.
It is said that the flexible battery appearance for the elastic wrist strap, as one of the important components of smart watches. Due to the ductility of the wristband, such extensible Eurostar batteries will be sewn into smart clothing. The power of the intelligent wearable device will eventually be driven by such batteries, which will cost less resources than traditional bulk batteries.
