Chinese company has created a unique smartphone battery, will not have to be charged for 50 years, this technology has an important role
China created a smartphone battery that will last for 50 years.
You will never have to charge your smartphone.
This same technology is used in pacemakers.
Nuclear Batteries for Smartphones: In the era of fast pace of information technology, smartphones are becoming more powerful day by day, whereas we have not seen any significant improvement in battery technology for the last few decades. Thanks to Nuclear Batteries, this situation is probably going to change. A Chinese company Betavolt Technology is developing a radionuclide battery, which can last for 50 years. This means you never have to charge your smartphone. Let us know how these nuclear batteries can bring a revolution in the field of mobile phones.
China’s Betavolt Technology is working on creating a nuclear battery that can fit in a smartphone and can last continuously for 50 years. This same technology is used in pacemakers. Which is a small, battery operated device and controls the heartbeat of heart patients. It is also used in space travel to supply power to those components of spacecraft that live far away from the Sun.
Earlier attempts were not successful
However, previous attempts to create nuclear batteries for smartphones were not successful because they were too large or did not provide enough power for smartphones. Anyway, using radioactive material like plutonium on a smartphone would have been dangerous. Therefore, Betavolt Technology is adopting a different path this time. It is developing a radionuclide battery, on which there is a layer of artificial diamond and it acts as a semiconductor layer. Apart from this, nickel isotope (nickel-63) decays and energy is generated from it.
The price of this upcoming phone of OnePlus has been leaked, it will be launched in India on January 23.
These nuclear batteries do not produce any toxic chemicals
These nuclear batteries have 10 times more energy density than existing lithium batteries. Nuclear batteries can store 3,300 megawatt-hours in 1 gram of battery and there is no problem with battery degradation. Apart from this, nuclear batteries are not affected by harsh environment and load because the power output of these batteries is stable. The company aims to increase the technology to deliver electricity up to one watt in the next two years. The good thing about this technology is that no radiation comes out of the system and the nickel isotope breaks down into copper. Which means that no poisonous chemicals are produced in this process. Although this is a promising development in battery technology, we will have to wait and see if this technology is suitable for large-scale use on smartphones.
