A new technology developed in Japan could well change our batteries in the long term, and to our advantage!
As we know, the best indicator of the aging of a smartphone is the battery. Over the months and years, we see the autonomy of his device reduce, often to the point of arriving at devices that cannot be fully recharged, or having to switch back to the mains every 2 hours. It must be said that it is estimated that a battery loses its capacity to the tune of 5 to 10% per year. A problem that has not yet been resolved, and which affects even the best machines like the Galaxy S20 Ultra – currently available on promotion – and its 5000 mAh battery. But if until then the manufacturers did not seem able to do much, an innovation coming from Japan could be a game changer.
Indeed, as sammobile reveals to us, a team of researchers from the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST) have developed a technology to preserve 95% of the initial capacity of a battery over a period of 5 years of use ! Relying on a material by the (barbaric) name of Bis-imino-acenaphthenequinone-Paraphenylene, the team led by Professor Matsumi managed to preserve a battery even after 1,700 cycles. Note on this discovery could also be applied to connected watches and other wireless headphones. Imagine this innovation taking place in your Airpods Pro – the price of which is currently on the decline -!
