Toshiba’s new NanoBattery might lead to a revolution One of the biggest limitations in the mobile world is the capabilities (or the lack of it) of the batteries which power the devices to last longer without recharges. However, limitations posed by the present generation of batteries might have restricted the mobile manufacturers to reach the heights that could have been achieved. Nonetheless, the latest developments from the tech giant Toshiba Corporation might result in a total transformation of this industry. Their latest announcement is about a new lithium-ion battery, which could make long recharge times of the batteries a thing of the past. Impressively, these new batteries attain a charge of around 80% capacity after just 1 minute of recharging. This recharge capability is around 60 times faster than traditional batteries. In addition, it also enhances the energy density of the cells using the Toshiba’s advancements in nano-material technology for the electric devices. Interestingly, the battery also comes with impressive long life cycle. As per test results, it loses only a minute fraction of the capacity even after thousands of recharges and discharges. In addition, the batteries have performed well at extremely low temperatures. Toshiba plans to bring these batteries into production next year. During the initial days, they would be serving the automotive and industrial sectors where they could be implemented to power hybrid electric vehicles. This would be really cool to use in laptops, use use use use then recharge for 5 minutes and use again!
