Scientists invent new battery that can charge in a minute


Scientists from the Stanford University have invented a new battery that can recharge a phone in just a minute. The new aluminium battery can be a good way to get rid of the long frustrating hours of charging a smartphone to be used during travel when you will not have enough charging options.

Scientists have claimed that the new aluminium battery is safe as well as green. Regular alkaline batteries are not good for the environment and the lithium ion batteries that are used in several smartphones and laptops can have the risk of bursting in to flames. Scientists from the Stanford University has invented a new high performance battery which lasts for a longer time and is also inexpensive.

The best part is that the battery is flexible so it can be used in the new developing folding devices. The only drawback is that it has just half the voltage of the present lithium ion batteries. Hongjie Dai the professor of chemistry said, “We have developed a rechargeable aluminium battery that may replace existing storage devices, such as alkaline batteries, which are bad for the environment, and lithium-ion batteries, which occasionally burst into flames.”

Dai added that the new battery will not catch fire even if you drill through it.
