Recently, Nokia officially announced that it is developing new battery technology for the arrival of 5G. This new product can provide 2.5 times battery life compared with the current market capacity of ultra-thin batteries.
The press release states that the new battery tech offers 2.5 times more battery life in the same volume of today’s slim batteries. This new design will benefit IoT devices, powergrids for renewable energy systems, backup systems for networks gear and other devices.
“By packing more energy into a smaller space, this new battery technology will have a profound impact on 5G and the entire networked world,” said Paul King, one of the lead investigators on the project and Member of the Technical Staff, Nokia Bell Labs. “The combination of Nokia Bell Labs industry and device knowledge and AMBER’s materials science expertise allowed us to tackle an extremely difficult problem involving multiple disciplines. Our results were achieved through the deeply collaborative mode in which we work, underscoring the value of engaging with AMBER as part of our global research strategy.”
The SFI Advanced Materials and Bioengineering Research Center, hosted by Nokia Bell Labs and AMBER researchers at Trinity College Dublin, announced that they have created a new battery formula that is 2.5 times more battery-powered than any product on the market today.
Almost all the current digital devices require more power to operate longer. All gadgets we use, including smartphones, drones, electric cars, and robots have made new applications requiring higher battery performance and longer battery life.
