What Does the Future of Mobile Power and Batteries Look Like?

What Does the Future of Mobile Power and Batteries Look Like?

You might have noticed the mobile technology around you, like smartphones, tablets, and wearables, getting noticeably stronger in recent years. As their strength increases, so too does their power expenditure, demanding more effective batteries and charging technologies as a result. Today, we want to look at the ever-fascinating topic of batteries for mobile technology and how innovations can help to fuel change in device design.

Solid-State Batteries

Solid-state batteries are considered the next major development for the battery, and for good reason. Unlike the typical lithium-ion batteries that use liquid electrolytes, a solid-state battery uses solid electrolytes, significantly reducing the potential for a leak or fire. Solid-state batteries are also more energy-efficient, making for greater long-term power storage… a necessary trait for today’s powerful mobile devices.

Silicon Anodes

Silicon anode technology will change battery performance by replacing traditional graphite anodes in lithium-ion batteries with silicon. Since silicon can hold up to ten times more lithium ions than graphite, it has the potential to dramatically increase power capacity. The end result is mobile devices with double the battery life span of modern-day tech.

Graphene Batteries

Graphene is one of the best conductors out there, and it consists of a single layer of carbon atoms that are arranged in a two-dimensional lattice. If a battery uses graphene, it can charge faster and hold onto that charge longer than if it uses lithium-ion batteries. These types of batteries can cut down charge times by as much as 60 percent, which is incredible to think about.

Flexible and Stretchable Batteries

Wearable technology has exploded in popularity in recent years, leading to more innovations in wearable tech batteries. To this end, many have been designed to be more flexible and lightweight. They can be implemented into clothing, skin patches, and other neat wearable devices. The batteries themselves use silver nanowires and flexible polymers to help them resist the wear and tear of everyday use.

Batteries will only become more important as mobile technology takes over the marketplace. Follow our blog to learn more about how to fully utilize mobile technology.
