make no mistake: the battery of almost any smartphone does not satisfy users. there are very few smartphones with decent battery performance. but that may change very soon thanks to these five technological advances. goodbye short autonomy!
- 6 errors that can damage your smartphone’s battery
- how to maximize battery life on any android!
1. samsung’s graphene battery will last twice as long
the team of scientists at samsung is investigating the effects of using graphene on smartphone batteries that, according to the latest advances, can greatly increase the duration of the same. this material, whose properties have already been studied but without great practical results, will be used directly on the silicon covers to increase the storage capacity of the battery, almost doubling it.
this type of use would mainly have three benefits: make the battery 1.8 times longer; optimize the life of the same without the size is affected, thus allowing the design of samsung smartphones from areacodesexplorer can retain their thickness; and finally allow every charge the device receives(charging cycle) does not deplete the battery life.
have you thought about galaxy s7 and note 5 ? calmly, samsung explained that this technology is still under development and will not come in less than three years.
2. stanford aluminum battery charging in one minute
researchers at stanford university say they have succeeded in creating a “fast, long-lasting, affordable battery”. the secret? a battery of aluminum ions that can reach full load in just sixty seconds.
- get to know the battery that charges fully in just 1 minute
the use of aluminum in batteries has been researched for a long time, due to its low cost and its non-flammable properties, but until now it was difficult to find materials that produced sufficient voltage after several cycles of loading. thanks to the use of graphite, this battery can withstand more than 7,500 cycles without losing its capacity(not just 1,000 cycles which usually supports a lithium-ion battery).
it is not possible to know when this battery will reach our smartphones. indeed, elton musk, director of tesla motors, showed his skepticism on twitter, claiming that before celebrating it is necessary to know the energy density of this type of battery.
the researchers involved in the project admit that there is still a lot of work to be done, but they are optimistic, and have even started contacting several manufacturers.
3. the android m doze mode
with each version of android, google plans to optimize device battery management, but few of these improvements have brought significant improvements. that’s why it’s hard to take seriously google’s promise that thanks to android’s doze mode , a device like the nexus 9 could double its range.
despite this, twelve is a different function from what has been seen so far, in the first place because its operation will not depend on developers’ use of it. this mode is integrated with the operating system, making your smartphone save energy while you are at rest.
basically the twelve will be activated when the device is still, unplugged from the charger and the screen is deleted, at which time the background activity of the applications is interrupted, only returning when the device receives a priority notification, such as whatsapp.
4. ubeam will allow you to charge your smartphone in the distance
wireless charging is already a reality for many newer devices, but a new technology promises to revolutionize the way we charge our device. the main difference between this and the other improvements made in the area lies in the fact that ubeam could potentially cause the devices to load without realizing it, thanks to a panel housed in our house(or anywhere else) .
this technology, developed by a 25-year-old asto- biologist, causes the energy to be converted into ultra-sound waves sent through the air, and converted back into energy upon reaching the device. that is, instead of having the device near or connected to the charger, we can use the device through the house without realizing that it is being charged.
obviously the smartphone would have to be close to the wave emitter, but as the developer claims, if this idea gained popularity, the charging panels could also be placed in public places.
5. project ara will allow the user to choose the size of the battery
this will not be a solution for many. in fact, these devices are geared primarily to a minority of developers and geeks. this is the first modular device, which will include a base to which you can add different modules or parts that will form the processor, the camera, the screen and, of course, the battery.
a smartphone that changes constantly is a device that never goes out of date. in addition, its concept allows the user to decide which part of the device should be upgraded. it will be possible, for example, to give up a thin smartphone to have a bigger battery.
which of these advances do you find most interesting?
