All the lies of the batteries of the future. Do not be fooled!

The problems with smartphone batteries are repeated in electric cars, and one of them is lithium, the white gold of the 21st century, from which you can obtain benefits similar to the monarchies of the Persian Gulf.

In this sense, the lithium ion battery It is a technology that is very mature today, although it is obviously still in constant development. Likewise, these batteries have the same “classic” operation, that is, anodes and cathodes.

Compact technologies

One of the problems that batteries have is that their technologies are not very compact and, the less compact they are, the greater the loss of energy and performance.

Therefore, one of the problems we encounter with batteries is their lack of compaction and its possibility of replace In a simple way. However, technology has been advancing, and it seems that without abandoning lithium, the titanium air or silicon air batteries They are the batteries that could store cars and cell phones. Now, these cells are under development and at the moment they are batteries that, until they are tested in real circumstances, we cannot consider them to be the batteries of the future.

Silicon and carbon batteries

Batteries using this technology are already beginning to be used in some devices and it is one of the technologies that has been advancing the most in recent years.

The Chinese company Honor It has been one of the first telephone companies to implement them in its devices within China. Within the Asian giant, the battery has a lifespan of 12.8% longer than the battery sold in the rest of the countries, which has an autonomy of 5450 milliamps. The cells of this type there are more cheap to produce, easy to manufacture, they offer greater safety, lower heat, longer useful life, more stable loading, smaller size and higher density.

The big leap will be made when this technology is also implemented in electric cars, because it can be developed much more quickly and for different production processes, which will benefit users.

Now, why are we naming electric cars all the time? The answer lies with the Japanese company Toyota, one of the most innovative companies in recent years.

The Japanese firm has managed to develop a battery system called SSBthat is to say, solid state batteries where all its components are solid. These batteries, unlike lithium batteries, are much more stable and safe, since they cannot explode in the event of an accident.

The problem with these batteries is their complexity when it comes to mass production and that its production costs are affordable. This is where the problem lies with the “batteries of the future of smartphones”, which are amazing and revolutionary, but are very, very expensive.

In short, today the battery of the future does not exist and there are only tests and trials, without anything having been standardized or implemented. Many patents, many demonstrations and few results.
