Could this man be responsible to extend laptop battery life of 16 to 32 hours? Or, what is the same, is approximately 800% increase?.
His name is Cho Jaephil, and is the director of a team of researchers at the University Hanyung South Korea, as we have announced today, are demanding a bill that, among other things, would bring about a remarkable breakthrough in terms the time corresponding to the autonomy of portable batteries today.
And it remains true that the autonomy of the batteries of lithium ion charge may increase up to 8 times the current values.
As we know, today's technology one of the factors limiting this expansion is the capacity of cathode materials such as graphite, lithium ion storage.
Something that would be a very great advance not only in regard to the gadgets, but also for the development of new electric vehicles that are supposed to appear to be the "future".
However, in this case have managed to implement a three-dimensional porous silicon can store up to eight times more lithium ions.
Can you imagine in this case a laptop whose battery has a range of more than 30 hours? Far from the current between 2 or 4, it is certainly a time that almost makes me dizzy.
Let's see how you can develop this sector in the coming years. And above all, hopefully this breakthrough will not remain just there.
