Scientists Have Invented A Bendable Battery That Could Change The Way You Power Your Devices
Apr 12, 2015
Scientists at Stanford, however, may have found the alternative. Although the interest in a bendable aluminum battery has been around for a while, it simply couldn't compete with lithium ion. Thanks to using a mixture of graphite and a special liquid salt, this version might finally be able to offer a cheaper, safer and more powerful alternative.
The lithium ion battery has long been the standard power option for just about all of our handheld devices. Open up any cell phone and you'll find one. Although it has limitations such as requiring a hard casing and being prone to combustion if punctured, the power output offered by lithium ion has simply been far more practical than any of the alternatives.
