Discovery: Are you tired of replacing your expensive rechargeable batteries? Those days may soon be over if your “techie” devices run on Lithium batteries.
A new lithium-ion battery, it is said, could last for more than 20 years; making it’s lifespan longer then the device you purchased it for…
Modern gadgetry such as the hour-glass clock runs off battery power, so it’s not surprising that lots of time is spent researching alternatives to finding new power options from a battery cell. Nikkei Company is reporting that its Ea
mex in Osaka, Japan, has developed a lithium-ion battery that will last for more than 20 years of regular use — that’s 10,000 charges with no replacement (what an incredible cost saving technology). Talk about going GREEN. 😉
The key to the long-lasting lithium-ion battery is in its design; the tin that is used for a battery’s negative electrode weakens through continual charging and recharging. The new design, however, calls for a tin-coated resin plating — that stabilizes the electrodes and prevents deterioration and majorly prolongs battery life. You can look forward to seeing these exciting, new batteries debut in electric devices such as watches and power scooters sometime this year.
So, what do you think? Could this new technology be helpful to you? How would this battery be good for our environment? Please comment.
