New Battery Technology


In a world of developing technology, every enthusiast loves it whenever a new gadget is invented. Has the average user ever noticed or observed how tacky and bothersome it is when the battery of the cell phone loses power in a short period of time? By way of example, what if you were in the middle of an important conversation concerning business or anything which is considered to be significant from the perspective of a particular customer? Then suddenly the phone no longer functions until it is able to be recharged again which becomes an inconvenience. Currently, there is a new upgrade in the battery sector as the new lithium-ion battery design has been created. This product is 2,000 times more powerful and recharges 1,000 times faster when compared to other batteries. As stated by the scientists, this is not merely an evolutionary stage in battery tech, “It’s a new enabling technology… it breaks the normal paradigms of energy sources. It’s allowing us to do different, new things.”  The old, bulky lithium-ion battery has finally been updated with enough power to boost a car battery and still restore in seconds.

So how does this sort of power relate to real-world scenarios? The batteries could, in theory, broadcast radio signals 30 times farther than normal and allow devices to be about 30 times smaller. The fact that the microbatteries will recharge 1,000 times faster than existing technologies makes this product highly extraordinary. This denotes that devices could be powered for days and recharge in seconds. William P. King utilises medical devices and implants as an illustration declaring, “Where the battery is an enormous brick, and it’s connected to itty-bitty electronics and tiny wires. Now the battery is also tiny.” Many global citizens share the perspective in life that if something is bigger that this connotes that it would be more beneficial to the consumer. However in scenarios like this, the trend of thought alters as this battery demonstrates that these small devices are quite favorable and delightful.

Presently, technology generally is objectively limited by battery technology, particularly when it deals with medicine. There are several types of hearing aid batteries, categorized by size and color coding. The size of battery desired will depend on the particular type and model of the hearing aid. Most hearing aids use one of five standard button cell battery sizes, each represented by a color code. Cochlear implant hearing aids are used for those with significant hearing loss to deafness. Batteries for these hearing aids are made from zinc. They are typically 1.45 volts, which allows them to last longer and be changed less frequently. However, a miniature battery such as the lithium-ion battery will allow programmers to create tablets that can easily be held in one hand for any amount of time and laptops that wouldn’t be difficult to hold due to their heavy weight. Additionally, the new battery is less prone to fire hazards because of its capability to function within a wider temperature range and better manage its internal temperature modifications. It can be used for boats, for accommodation and grid storage, as well as plug-in vehicles, which are subject to a “large and growing sales pipeline.”

It is an incredible fact that advances in battery technology may one day help to solve the global energy crisis. The improvements that are being made in battery technology are quite “mind baffling” for those that are unaware of how it is done. These devices are collecting power from about every source that is imaginable and at the present there is battery technology from researchers who work at various universities across the globe. From cell phones to cars and all in between, there may sooner or later be nothing more required than to actually use the device.  So although, the technology behind the lithium-ion battery has not yet entirely reached maturity, the batteries are the type of choice in many consumer electronics.  They also have one of the best energy-to-mass ratios and a very slow loss of charge when not in use.

About Krystal Volney

Krystal Volney is an award-winning West Indian writer (Trinidadian-Dominican) who was born on the island of Trinidad. Her favourite novels as a child were the Nancy Drew files, the Babysitter's club and the famous five. She started writing both female and male poetry in categories such as fashion, romance, the environment and children's poetry in the year 2010 (Cosmos and Spheres poetry book- Bestselling Ebook). She views humans as both "monarch and emperor butterflies" because of the transformation from an egg into a butterfly showcasing the metamorphosis as various stages of one's experiences throughout life. She claims that as a result of the prodigious difference between each human being in the global society, experiences differ and some persons mature into butterflies while some remain at a particular stage permanently at various points in their longevity. The contemporary poetess's character is floral. In the 21st century, this means that one consists of many petals and each petal tells a different story of who she is. She sees the "tiger lily" and "hibiscus flowers" as demonstrating what it means to be a woman and a lady. Some of her influences have been Mozart, Van Gogh, Emily Dickinson and Claude Monet.
