2X CAPACITY: SAMSUNG HAS A BREAKTHROUGH ON LITHIUM BATTERIES
So why am I posting this here? Simple - I don't see why this couldn't be applied to laptop batteries. What are laptop batteries made of? A whole bunch of 18650's! Could we see a doubling soon in capacity? I think its very possible!
"Researchers at Samsung Electronics announced yesterday that they have developed a new technology to produce a silicon cathode material that coats Graphene onto a silicon surface for higher energy density. In other words, Samsung has found a way to almost double the capacity of lithium batteries, which are used to power smartphones and various other gadgets.
As I’m sure you’re aware, smartphone battery capacity has increased slightly over the last decade, but the technology remains limited by the physical size of gadgets and the limitations of the actual materials inside the battery. As we can’t make batteries any bigger, increases in raw capacity are needed, and researchers have been looking to new materials to find the solution."
