Nano Lithium Ion BatterAccording to Popsci, researchers have crafted an lithium ion battery that’s battery life lasts up to almost two days. How so? Apparently they incorporated silicon nanowires in the battery, which extended its life. The technology is still in the ‘lab’ stage.

Citing a research paper they wrote, published in Nature Nanotechnology, Cui said the increased battery capacity was made possible though a new type of anode that utilizes silicon nanowires. Traditional lithium ion batteries use graphite as the anode. This limits the amount of lithium–which holds the charge–that can be held in the anode, and it therefore limits battery life.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
