New Technology: Samsung plans to double capacity of lithium-ion batteries – t3n Magazine

Samsung researchers want to have found the solution of how the capacity can be doubled in lithium-ion batteries: silicon. They have to resort to a trick.

Samsung: Material decides on battery capacity

Researchers have been working hard to increase the capacity of batteries. In the field of lithium-ion batteries, like those used in some smartphones, tablets as well as electric cars, it has so far lacked According to experts, the right material, with the help of which the performance would significantly improve. Since developing the first lithium-ion batteries in the 1990s, the capacity had just doubled.

Researchers at the South Korean Samsung Group will now have found a solution to the problem, such as business reports Korea. You use instead of the graphite used to date a cathode made of silicon. Since this material, however, has a lower durability – the corresponding battery would not have as many charging cycles as previously survive – it

New Samsung battery was encased for protection with a graphene sheet ready for the market in two to three years.

This is the capacity of the batteries will be at least doubled, which should please annoyed Smartphone or electric car users. However, the batteries are not yet ready for the market with the new technology with silicon-Turbo, which will be the case only in two to three years.

Then you should forecast to even the greatly improved lithium-ion battery be in the market, have developed the researchers from Singapore. You have the graphite replaced by titanium dioxide and expect from the fact that the new battery can be 20 times faster upload and last 20 times longer than the current lithium-ion battery generation.

But once again remains the Conclusion: promises of faster loading and longer-lasting batteries, there has been over the past few weeks and months. A consequent real cordless Revolution is but so far failed to materialize.
