10 times greater than current technology
Researchers at Northwestern University have developed a lithium-ion electrode that they say will allow conventional Li-ion batteries to hold a charge 10 times greater than current technology.
If true, that would theoretically allow electronic devices that use the technology about ten times the battery life that they use today, a key advantage for gadgets like power-hungry smartphones.
“We have found a way to extend a new lithium-ion battery’s charge life by 10 times,” said Harold H. Kung, lead author of the paper, in a statement released by the university. “Even after 150 charges, which would be one year or more of operation, the battery is still five times more effective than lithium-ion batteries on the market today.”
