Do you know your Galaxy smartphones lose up to 20% of their original capacity within one year of usage? It is true, and this is one of the reasons your smartphone’s battery die so soon. However, with the Galaxy S8, the capacity these batteries lose over a year is reduced to 5%. How cool is that?
Like any other product, researchers are working on ways to enhance battery lives. And this is shown in the Galaxy S8 devices. This doesn’t end here. Researchers are working on a new technology that would improve battery life better than what we witnessed in the Galaxy S8. With this technology, Galaxy smartphones will retain 95% of their original capacity for five years or more.
The negative terminals in the batteries use a binder material called Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF), which tends to lose up to 35% of the original capacity just after 500 recharge sessions.
According to a report, a team of scientists working at the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST) has found a new material that will help batteries retain 95% of their original capacity for five years or even longer.
The team has discovered a new binder material – Bis-imino-acenaphthenequinone-Paraphenylene (BP). This material allows the battery to maintain 95% of its original capacity for more than 1,700 recharges, which means around five years or more recharges.
The team said,
“The realization of durable batteries will help in the development of more reliable products for long-term use. This will encourage consumers to purchase more expensive battery-based assets like electric vehicles, which will be used for many years.”
According to the source, these new batteries will help smartphones, tablets, laptops, and wearables and batteries inside electric vehicles.
It has been a long time since I joined Research Snipers. Though I have been working as a part-time tech-news writer, it feels good to be part of the team. Besides that, I am building a finance-based blog, working as a freelance content writer/blogger, and a video editor.
