Charge your Mobile Battery in just 30 Seconds with
Aqueous Hybrid Battery
This actually seems too good to be true: Imagine a new, non-lithium based battery, which takes just 30 seconds to fully recharge.
Not only your mobile but also your laptops, tablets and other gadgets can actually transform.
Scientists from Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) have successfully demonstrated that this is indeed possible.
How Does The Aqueous Hybrid Battery Work?
Same old’ cathode and anode are no doubt used but in a new, revolutionary way.
A new form of a liquid electrolyte has been developed, which is sandwiched between a specially-designed anode and cathode.
While the anode is made of polymer chain materials based on graphene, which gives it a high surface area, and thus capability to store more energy.
A cathode, on the other hand, is made from nickel oxide nanoparticles embedded in graphene.
The molecular structure of these materials has produced a new form of storage mechanism, which has higher energy density and faster energy exchange.
And, the important part: Energy loss. Experiments have shown that this hybrid battery has near-zero energy loss, maintaining their capacity at 100% over 100,000 redox cycles.
In short, the new battery is over 100 times more powerful than traditional lithium-based batteries, which are currently in use.
Now, it would be interesting to observe how soon can this battery be commercially launched, and how soon can it improve the current power woes.
