A New Battery Could Charge Your Smartphone in 60 Seconds!

Battery life is a massive issue for all kinds of devices, from music players to smartphones, cameras and more. So it’s about time someone came up with a way to solve the issue.

Thankfully, plenty of people are working on it and one group at Stanford University may have come up with a solution. Researchers have developed a new aluminium battery which has a numbers of advantages – it’s safe to use and extremely flexible, so it could be forced in many different shapes to benefit the product.

But the most significant advantage of these new batteries is their blisteringly fast recharging speed. In tests, they estimate that a smartphone battery could be charged from flat to full in as little as 60 seconds!

That kind of speed would be a real game changer – even if these batteries didn’t last as long as regular lithium-ion cells, just a minute of charge would leave you ready once more for many hours of work, rather than having to take time out of your busy lives.

Right now, the only issue with these new batteries is that they’re relatively low in voltage, roughly half of what is currently needed to power a decent smartphone. But that’s just a matter of further testing and development, which is sure to follow now that a potential energy revolution is on the cards.

Stay tuned for more on the future of super-fast battery recharging!

In Short: There might just be a battery recharging revolution on the way, with all new technology in development at Stanford Univercity
