Soon, you won’t have to carry an extra battery and charging cable with you wherever you go. Scientists from the University of Central Florida (UCF) have developed a battery technology that can give your smartphone life for several days, in just a couple of seconds #hardwaremagic
Their discovery could change the mobile world in a few years. “If they were to replace the batteries with these supercapacitors, you could charge your mobile phone in a few seconds and you wouldn’t need to charge it again for over a week,” explains Nitin Choudhary, a postdoctoral associate who conducted much of the research published in the academic journal ACS Nano.
This supercapacitor is not only much more efficient than the current options, but is also more resistant. It can be charged over 30.000 times without degrading, according to the team of scientists. Such a revolutionary discovery has to be patented, obviously, and that is exactly the thing they’re working on now. Even after that, you’ll have to wait a while until it’s refined and ready to put on the market.
Once it sees the light of day, though, it could cut mobile devices and electric vehicles’ charge time tremendously. Imagine an EV able to recharge and get back on the road in a matter of minutes!
