This Battery Will Let You Charge Your Smartphone In Seconds
There's a growing number of smartphone users in the world, and the number of functions their phones deliver has made us more and more dependent on these devices, which require a lot of battery power. This is usually the aspect smartphone users complain about most, lack of battery power or charging times. As the future becomes the present, things will definitely change.
Researchers from the University of Central Florida (UCF) have developed a prototype of a supercapacitor battery that can store more energy than batteries nowadays and also have very short charging times. A postdoctoral associate at UCF, Nitin Choudhary, expressed that the new technology in batteries will let you charge up your smartphone in mere seconds.That's not all, this battery's charge could potentially last for a week! Yes, you read that right, 7 days of smartphone usage!
When can I get my hands on this battery?
Sorry to disappoint you guys, but let's not get ahead of ourselves, this battery is still in its early phases of development and isn't really ready for commercial sales just yet, but it's a start and once this technology is properly implemented, we'll be able to immerse ourselves into the smartphone 'on the go' experience like never before.
The research teams over at UCF have plans of patenting this technology that could be implemented into a variety of industries from smartphones to tablets, to smartwatches and potentially any device that requires a battery to run, like electric cars. The possibilities are endless.
The biggest question is, how long will we have to wait for this piece of technology that will allow us to use all our portable devices without worrying about the batteries draining.
