Scientific group of Stanford University (USA) has made a breakthrough in electric accumulators. In the near future energy consumption of the batteries can be double, or triple, scientists believe. Recent experiments in this area helped to create a miniature battery, the power of which was almost 50% more than any other, the same lithium ion battery.
Modern lithium-ion battery is mostly used silicon anodes that allow you to extend battery life. However, batteries with silicon anodes can not boast of energy consumption. It is worth noting that it is now known more capacious materials, but traditionally producers choose the efficiency and service life in the long term, the volume charge.
Scientists from Stanford University believe that the use of graphite anodes will make batteries more succinct. This idea has already confirmed a number of experiments, however, have emerged and some of the difficulties which scientists feared from the beginning.
All the matter is that although graphite anodes and allow you to collect more electrical energy can not boast durable operation and performance. From this it follows that in wide use, especially domestic or commercial, as such batteries are not cost effective. Nevertheless, scientists continue their work.
Scientific Group also initiated a project The pomegranate, whose goal was to create a new generation of battery. The main idea, which is now working on the science team, the table the idea that graphite should be given the necessary structure in order to improve the durability and efficiency of batteries, while retaining the maximum volume of energy consumption.
