Imagine a dead smartphone battery getting charged up to 70 per cent in flat two minutes? By using a common ingredient found in sunscreen, researchers from the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore have developed a smart battery that uses a gel-based material to speed up the charging process.
To do so, researchers replaced graphite in the battery’s anode with a gel made from titanium dioxide – a cheap ingredient found in sunscreen. The substance speeds up the chemical reactions in the battery, the Huffington Post reported.
The battery can be recharged 10,000 times. It can last nearly 20 years before it needs to be replaced. The new batteries could enter the market within two years, researchers added.
