The lithium batteries They are the heart of electric vehicles and other products such as mobile phones, digital cameras, MP3 players, laptops among others, so it is a vital element for these devices to work.
Although current batteries have improved a lot, they continue to try to achieve more efficient and profitable technologies.
The University of Leeds developed a new gel polymer that is used to make lithium batteries cheaper and maintains high performance.
This new technology was created by Iam Ward professor at this university but the license is from the company Polystor Energy Corporation.
This polymer could replace the liquid electrolytes used in rechargeable lithium cells. Gel can produce a low-cost, fast-producing, flexible, thin film that is placed on batteries.
The polymer gel allows the separation of polymers and other substances within the battery to no longer be required.
The advantage of this new material is that it can be cut to the size that is needed and adapts to any device, and it also does not generate danger of short circuits, making it very safe and resistant to damage.
The polymer gel looks solid to the eye but it is not as 70% are liquid electrolytes.
It is still in the testing stage but if the results continue to be good, it will surely be on the market in a short time.
This new technology is inexpensive and has endless applications, so it can be well developed and regularly used in various devices.
It is very important to continue research to improve technology, especially that involving environmentally friendly products. the environment.
