A very interesting news came from Singapore. It is reported that local Nanyang Technological University have come up with an impressive battery.
The characteristics of lithium-ion battery encouraging. Inventors took not familiar graphene, and titanium dioxide. Nanotube latter was made the anode.
It is possible to raise the rate of recharge element to record levels. Requires only 120 seconds to restore 70% of maximum power.
Sounds good. Especially in view of ease of production. Cheap to produce products based on it is not working (the material is not unique).
Moreover, in solving magnificent performance durability. Device – if you do not take into account the aggressive use cases – will not break down for 20 years.
This is as much as 10 000 cycles of charging (resource classical batteries does not exceed 500).
Where it is said the most useful? In a great many things. The most obvious options – laptop computers, gadgets and … electric cars.
For vehicles (like the Tesla Model S) Singapore know-how will be a boon. Greatly encourage the development of the industry.
Judge. “Refueling” will take a few minutes. Lost the need to change a key component before the car. Beauty!
Right now, scientists are not ready to conquer the market. But argue that the release of the first commercial samples will be held in the next few years (minimum 2 years).
