In the latest models of smartphones, we’ve seen that the battery is one of the points where manufacturers have increasingly stressed. For example, the iPhone 7 Plus has a capacity of 2,900 mAh in its electrical charge and Google Pixel XL uses a 3450 mAh battery.
But, if we go to Chinese devices, the OnePlus 3T has 3400 mAh and 50 mAh unless Google phone while charging the Huawei Mate 9 reaches 4,000 mAh. They are good cases of mobile high duration, but the power supply takes up much space which is the main problem. However, the University of Central Florida (UCF) has found a solution by creating smaller batteries that charge in seconds.
The physical aspect of the batteries for mobile has changed over the years. Of cruder structures occupying much space at the back have evolved to provide a smaller and thinner device with increased capacity. But if you have ever beheld a phone from the inside then you might have seen that takes up a lot of space on the chassis.
The Department of Nanotechnology at the UCF has developed a small, flexible battery which get charged in seconds. In the words of Dr. Nitin Choudhary “If this happens then one won’t need to charge the phone again for over a week. Moreover, it could let one charge the mobile phone in a few seconds.” The secret of its high capacity is the use of a surface with two – dimensional materials which work together to retain as much as static possible.
As for its fast charge, thanks to the increasingly present function USB Type C, these high-performance batteries will use flexible metal and graphene to allow quick passage of electrons through the structure.
There is no doubt that this project may be the future of batteries for smartphones. Its capabilities are well above the current ones, especially they survive 30,000 recharge cycles which is 20 times more than regular Lithium-ion batteries deployed today.
But until the technology matures and is implemented in the sector you will have to take good care of your mobile phone battery. For example, uninstall the apps that consume more simply to hold your smartphone all day or do not let the source indicator drops five percent of energy or reach over 90 when loading. Furthermore, the researchers are hopeful that it’s going to impact the technology world in a big way.
