Technology To Charge New Phone Batteries in 30 Seconds Coming.
This amazing new technology being developed by a startup company called StoreDot, will be able to charge batteries in seconds, not minutes, or hours.
Besides fast charging batteries this nano technology also shows promise for many other smartphone related technologies, including faster memory; more sensitive camera sensors; and flexible, energy-efficient displays.
By the way, quite a number of news organizations have kind of misleading titles on this story, such as the...
Wall Street Journal's: Charge Your Phone in 30 Seconds? An Israeli Firm Says It Can.
Examiner's: A 30 second phone charger: Only one year away?The technology is not to charge "your phone,"
as though it is a "phone charger" being developed that can charge any phone,
but it is in fact a new kind of battery, with what what's being called NanoDots coating the battery's electrodes that fill it's microscopic cavities, extending its reactive surface.
Oddly enough some news articles never even mention that it's actually a battery being developed, or talk about the NanoDot particles being researched.Anyway, the whole idea is surprisingly simple & yet intriguing.
Call me quite impressed with this one, but it's actually said to still be a few years through R&D to production.The best article I've seen on this,
that explains the insides of this process clearly & succinctly, comes from +ZDNet
& here's a brief...First the building blocks:Artificially synthesised from the same building blocks — elements such as oxygen and hydrogen — as natural peptides, these NanoDots could prove disruptive to multi-billion-dollar industries such as batteries, displays, image sensors, and non-volatile memory.Then how it works:The NanoDots cover the tiny 'cavities' that cover an electrode found in a standard battery, extending its reactive surface, and allowing its capacity to be increased tenfold. Through the addition of the NanoDots, the electrode becomes "multi-function" — at one end, the electrode stores electrical energy creating a capacitor, and at the other, lets it flow into the battery's lithium.In layman's terms, StoreDot has created a 'buffer' that stores electrical current coming from the wall socket over a period of around thirty seconds, then letting it flow slowly into the lithium. Myersdorf says that eventually, the company plans to get rid of the lithium in the battery altogether.Changing the chemical reactions occurring inside the battery should also improve battery life in long run — allowing thousands of charge cycles instead of hundreds today — while still keeping the same weight and form factor.
