More stamina Google is researching new battery technology –

Google needs better batteries with greater endurance and more flexibility for its ambitious projects. A separate research team is now exploring new technologies.

The Achilles heel of many smart wearables and smartphones are still the short battery life. This problem has also been recognized Google – and compiled over a year ago, a small team that will be dedicated specifically researching new battery technologies such as only just been announced.

As the Wall Street Journal reported that 4-man team of Dr. Ramesh Bhardwaj is passed. Former Apple employee is considered an expert in this field and already tested in late 2012 third-party batteries for their performance, designed specifically for Google hardware.

Around the mini-task then a year later, Force established, which should now press ahead with the development of its own battery technologies. It is part of Google research laboratory “X” that developed among others, the data goggles Google Glass.

The Wall Street Journal, Google shows particularly strong interest in so-called solid-state batteries – this is a rejuvenator solid electrolyte material that will be thinner and safer than lithium-ion models. Due to their high flexibility, these can even be theoretically implanted in the human body.

New battery technologies are available with Google not only because of their own smart wearables products interesting. As the Wall Street Journal wrote that the Internet company is currently working on 20 projects where battery technology plays a central role – including, for example, Google’s self-driving cars.

But not only Google is working feverishly on new battery types. Also Hongjie Dai, researchers at Stanford University, has developed together with colleagues an aluminum-ion battery that will shine with “unprecedented Aufladeraten” of one minute (see video).
