Here at Battery Central, we quite often let our customers know about any news or technological breakthroughs that have occurred in the world of batteries. It is this finger on the pulse attitude that has allowed us to achieve great success for many years over both Brisbane and the Gold Coast. In today’s blog post, we will put the spotlight on some of the newest battery technologies that is being developed by a few clever people in the United States of America.
What’s the news?
The University of California in San Diego has recently announced that engineers from one of their schools have developed a groundbreaking new way to decrease the charging times for lithium ion batteries. Without getting too technical, the engineers have essentially achieved this by developing complex mathematical algorithms to more accurately distribute the charge to the particles in the battery. This increases the efficiency of the process, and therefore reduces the time it takes to charge.
Why is this so important?
The reason that this breakthrough is so important is that for quite some time, many respected figures have suggested that battery development has plateaued. This is mainly due to the fact that the physical dimensions of batteries has been shrunk and pushed further than ever before. This technology will completely revolutionise the industry with its brains of brawn approach.
What will this mean for me?
Of course what everyone wants to know is how this new technology will benefit them. Well, once the technology is rolled out, you will begin to see significantly improved charging times for all of your electronic devices including phones, laptops and more. The automobile industry will also benefit, as researchers look for ways to increase the efficiency of electric and hybrid cars.
