Back in my day it took 5 seconds to get a fully charged battery - Through this brilliant tech called removable batteries. But hey if your phone doesn't wear out how are companies going to make you buy new phones eh
There is an actual physical limitation of the weight of the atoms. Lithium holding two electrons. Carbon is actually much much heavier for the number of electrons it can carry. One need only look at the periodic table of elements for that.
So - unless someone figures out how to make hydrogen into a battery, Lithium will probably still have the weight advantage over all other formulations. It would be great to have a stable hydrogen battery, because it would actually be negative weight at atmosphere.
Side fact: Billion dollar satellites still use Nickel Cadmium batteries because of its extreme ruggedness.
Tech you are talking about has been around for hundreds of years as well.
They are classified as supercapacitors more than batteries because of their tendency to not hold charge for long periods of time (weeks instead of years)
Arguably, most cellphone users plug in their phone every night, so a supercapacitor formulation is probably better than a battery formulation which is geared for months if not years of electrical storage.
Well here is what I have to say--- We should have easily removable batteries which can be removed by a button or something similar then we can use the charging module to charge it and quickly install already charged battery.This should solve problems of half of us
The things holding back graphine batteries in phones are all legal reasons like closing all doors to small companies ability to produce affordable alternatives. Only then will the big boys bring out the toys. If you believe anything else you been had.
Absolutely great video, boss! Battery is everyone´s concern and it just doesn´t seem to evolve. To a point where to me, I´m considering getting a Blackberry KeyOne due to its longest battery life! And it really is weird the fact that the technology used is century old. Great explanation! Good job!!
From a business perspective, or the consumer electronics side, you make a strong case why li-ion is used but your scientific explanation about "the next best thing" is dead wrong. There have been many attempts to improve upon the standard liquid state batteries but they all have limits that cant be improved upon right now. Mainly because the only way we can reliably produce (high quality) graphene is inside a nano-lab with a highly controlled enviroment that we cant yet scale. And graphene will first just be used in a composit electrode as replacement for graphite and diliver higher conductivity inside li-ion cells. In the case that we could scale production of metal-oxide batteries that replace li-ion there is the possibility to double the storrage density. Certain batteries are already used in pacemakers but are just too expensive for conventional electronics. Producing graphene in bulk, thats a big problem to be solved. Creating the right structure and interface in bulk for ssb's is a herdle many universities are trying to overcome. The technology is not quite there yet and li-ion is dirt cheap. You probably know this but it is oversimplified to state that graphene is going to replace li-ion.
I really want to see actual wireless charging come (not the conductive charging we have today that’s dubbed “wireless charging”)
Like for example, you walk into a Starbucks and your phone will begin charging over the air through whatever tech would make that possible. The tech dose exist, it’s just very much in its infancy stage and I don’t expect to see it until maybe 10-20 years from now.
