New battery research could boost battery life of smartphones
A team at the energy storage technology company AdvEn Solutions has developed a new technology that could result in faster charging and longer lasting smartphones.

The team found that using carbon as a cathode in lithium-ion batteries results in energy output that's as much as five to eight times higher than the lithium-ion batteries that are currently used. Carbon is safe to use, cost effective and it seems to perform better than lithium-sulfur and lithium-air batteries, which are two other technologies currently in development.

It is hoped that a prototype will be developed by the end of the year. We will then get to see these supposed faster charging, longer lasting batteries put to the test.Don’t get your hopes up too soon though. Researcher Xinwei Cui told Beacon News that it will be a while before this new battery could be used in smartphones or other commercial products. Cui said, “We have a long way to go, but we're on the right track. It's exciting work and we want everyone to know about it and that it's very young but promising."
