Fast-charging batteries will power your gadgets for 20 years!

Article: http://www.engadget.com/2014/10/13/fast-long-lived-lithium-ion-batteries/

Original source: Nanyang Technological University

 

I hope this will become mainstream as fast as possible!

 

 

Nanyang Technological University developed new lithium ion batteries that can reach a 70 percent charge in two minutes, but should also last for over 20 years -- several times longer than the cells in your current laptop or smartphone. The trick is using titanium dioxide nanotubes for the anode (the negative pole) instead of graphite; they both speed up the battery's chemical reactions while offering 10,000 charging cycles instead of the usual 500.

 

There's no definite timetable for when upgraded batteries could reach shipping products, but the mini titanium tubes are both easy to make and relatively inexpensive. They could make a big impact on the technology world when they arrive, though.

What's the point of advancement if it cannot be utilized for long enough to be useful?

Limited use now doesn't mean limited use forever. If anything, these advancements push others to innovate and compensate.

It isn't that the companies can't make a battery that lasts long it is the fact that people will complain about the price of a device with a really good battery

NOW. Can't be utilized now. How are people supposed to make more advanced programs and such if there isn't something for them to build off of?

Dear god you're so fucking short sighted. Something has to come first. You'd probably complain if people released things that couldn't be run too, wouldn't you. "Oh, we can't run it, what's the point of having it?"

Not to mention the faster ghz is there because of advancement, yes, but it's not like they're just aiming for speed. There are SO many other improvements that come with newer chips, that the speed is really just a biproduct of a better process.

And you think that technology just gets talked about and immediately comes out?

Nope.

Charging a battery to 70 percent in a few minutes? Wireless?  Sounds like it will cause a rip in space time or at least cause the Earth's magnetic field to reverse.

There's a typo in your title. It says "Power your gadgets for 20 years". It should say "Power your gadgets IN 20 years... if you're lucky". Seriously, I've been seeing revolutionary new battery technologies constantly, but none of them have ever actually been put into anything I've bought.

they could eliminate forced obsolescence

That's exactly why it's not going to happen any time soon. Industry depends upon obsolescence to keep itself going. That's how the economy works, we need perpetual consumption in order to keep businesses relevant and people in jobs. It's fucked up.

Thats true, but if you look at it from the perspective of not having time wasted on charging you device from the electricity grid, I much rather do all kinds of stuff and be a power user on my device without worrying about slow recharge time.

Imagine we have such technology, we would be more careless about battery life left on your devices, and why should we when we can charge them for 2-3 mins and with that said those cycles of battery recharges will go away much faster.

I think thats a Win-Win situation.

So this came out today, and should make a huge difference to our mobile experience. 

Now all we need is a battery that will last past 1-2 days....

 

Though the bigger picture is electric cars that can charge in minutes....I wonder if Tesla will be pushing to help fund this?

 

 

Researchers at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore have come up with the best solution yet - a lithium ion battery that charges to 70 percent in just two minutes. Even better, it also lasts for 20 years, and will reportedly be available to the public within two years.

 

Rechargeable lithium ion batteries are already common in our mobile phones, tablets and laptops - but most only last around 500 recharge cycles, which is around two to three years of typical use. And at the moment batteries take around two hours to fully charge.

 

The new battery drastically improves this process, and will allow you to charge your phone while you look for your keys on the way out the door. It would also help make electric vehicles a more viable alternative to fossil-fuel-powered cars, by reducing battery replacement costs and allowing drivers to recharge their cars in minutes. 

 

“Electric cars will be able to increase their range dramatically, with just five minutes of charging, which is on par with the time needed to pump petrol for current cars,” said Professor Chen Xiaodong who led the study, in a press release. “Equally important, we can now drastically cut down the toxic waste generated by disposed batteries, since our batteries last 10 times longer than the current generation of lithium-ion batteries.”
