Researchers to Develop Long-Lasting Solid-State Batteries

Researchers to Develop Long-Lasting Solid-State Batteries

Sep 18, 2015
Whenever you go to Buy any Electronic Gadget — Phone, Tablet, Laptop, Watch — the most important specification isn't its processor speed or its camera quality. It's how long the device's battery backup is. Imagine easy access to such batteries that provide more battery power after charging it once, do not give up in less time and have a life of many years. To achieve this, the researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Samsung , have developed a new material that could potentially revolutionize the Battery industry. Researchers have solved all these Battery issues with just one weird practical approach, called Solid-State Electrolytes . Today the cells we depend on contain Liquid-State Electrolyte , the researchers thought of replacing the one with a Solid form of electrolyte. Solid-State Electrolytes could simultaneously address the greatest challenges associated with improving lithium-ion batteries (LIB) , with the possibility to increas

Most of us could not imagine our lives without Smartphone, but the most annoying part of Smartphone remains its battery life. No matter how power efficient our device would be, the smart display, faster performance and several apps running on our phones end up consuming all of it. Now, I am here just not to talk about all these problems that you are facing, but I am here to introduce you an ultra-fast-charging battery that can charge your Smartphone in as little as 60 Seconds. Yes, you heard right! Recharge your battery in just 60 seconds means, 1 minute. FAST BATTERY CHARGING TECHNOLOGY Scientists at Stanford University in the U.S. have developed a prototype aluminium battery that charges smartphone to full capacity in just 60 seconds. Researchers say that this new aluminium battery is long-lasting, flexible and cheap, and could one day replace lithium-ion and alkaline batteries used in used in millions of mobile phones and laptops today. In addition to

How Nation-State Actors Target Your Business: New Research Exposes Major SaaS Vulnerabilities

Feb 15, 2024SaaS Security / Risk Management
With many of the highly publicized 2023 cyber attacks revolving around one or more SaaS applications, SaaS has become a cause for genuine concern in many boardroom discussions. More so than ever, considering that GenAI applications are, in fact, SaaS applications. Wing Security (Wing), a SaaS security company, conducted an analysis of 493 SaaS-using companies in Q4 of 2023.  Their study reveals  how companies use SaaS today, and the wide variety of threats that result from that usage. This unique analysis provides rare and important insights into the breadth and depth of SaaS-related risks, but also provides practical tips to mitigate them and ensure SaaS can be widely used without compromising security posture.  The TL;DR Version Of SaaS Security 2023 brought some now infamous examples of malicious players leveraging or directly targeting SaaS, including the North Korean group UNC4899, 0ktapus ransomware group, and Russian Midnight Blizzard APT, which targeted well-known organizat

Is It Possible to Track Smartphone Location By Monitoring Battery Usage?

Data leaks through power consumption? Don't be surprised because security researchers have discovered a way to track your every move by looking at your Android smartphone's consumption of the battery power,even if you have GPS access unable. Researchers at Stanford University and Israeli Defense Research Group, Rafael, have developed a new technology, which they have dubbed " PowerSpy ", that have capability to gather the geolocation of Android phones by simply by measuring the battery usage of the phone over a certain time. TRACKING PERMISSION GRANTED BY-DEFAULT Unlike Wi-Fi and GPS access, the battery consumption data does not need the users' permission to be shared and is freely available to any downloaded and installed application. Therefore, this data can be used to track a phone with up to 90 percent accuracy. All an attacker would need to do is use an application — any application you download and installed onto your Android smartphone — to measu

Mobile Charger That Can Power-Up Your Smartphone in 30 Seconds

Apr 12, 2014
Going for a meeting or for a party and your Phone's battery discharged? Oops!  Yes, I know this happens with most of us once in a day or I can rather say all of us. Smartphones are smart enough but not that smarter as expected keeping in mind today's lifestyle. Phones are the basic necessity now-a-days, but this comes up with another tension-tension of charging at regular intervals, which took most of our precious time. GET-SET CHARGE IN 30 SECONDS Now, if I say that your Smartphone will charge in just 30 seconds, then you definitely won't believe it. But saying this won't be wrong, Israeli start-up claims to have created a battery that uses nanotechnology to charge your Smartphone in 30 seconds. StoreDot unveiled the device Monday at Microsoft's Think Next Conference in Tel Aviv . The prototype charger is capable to charge your Smartphone 100% within few blinks of your eyes, all in about 30 seconds. It depends on bio-organic quantum dots that are na
