Researchers to Develop Long-Lasting Solid-State Batteries

September 18, 2015Khyati Jain
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
