HONG KONG (PRWEB) January 31, 2018
Surwon Technology, the Hong Kong based materials developer, has presented an innovative technique that could potentially double the life-time performance of a conventional lithium-ion battery cell.
The breakthrough could help manufacturers of battery dependent applications to overcome the challenges they face as consumer lifestyles demand more efficient sources of energy to compliment evolving mobile trends.
With the advent of mobile smart phones technologies, consumer preferences over the past decade have changed to accommodate an on-the-go lifestyle where everything from internet based applications to smart home technologies can be controlled remotely.
In meeting these demands, advancements in battery technology has at times been labored, as the realms of possibility becomes constricted by the capacity of energy source technologies. Whilst battery innovation has improved leaps and bounds, restrictions in energy source efficiency remain, essentially stagnating the commercialization of numerous applications.
“The challenge for all energy dependent applications lies in creating a more robust, efficient battery fuel cell. We have found that graphene provides us with substantial flexibility as we continue to manipulate electrical behavior at the atomic level,” commented Surwon Technology’s Chief Technology Officer.
“In identifying lithium-ions as the most capable elements to maintain an electronic charge, we have utilized the properties of graphene to reinforce the structure of the anode component to increase elasticity and resilience against damaged caused during the repetitive nature of a charge-discharge energy flow cycle.”
“By increasing the tensile properties of the atomic structure, our research shows that electrical conductivity is enhanced over a longer range as resistance to deterioration is increased in a more stable structural composite.”
Surwon Technology will use these initial findings as a springboard to a more detailed R&D effort as the company continues to work in collaboration with energy dependent application developers in pursuit of improving energy fuel efficiencies.
