Designed a flexible battery for smartphones with an energy density 10 times higher than that of lithium-ion batteries

In the modern world, the bottleneck of electronic devices remains the battery and the operating time without recharging, so scientists around the world are actively working in this direction.

According to Chinese sources, scientists have developed an experimental battery for flexible devices that has an energy density 10 times that of lithium-ion batteries. This technology should facilitate the commercial production of flexible batteries for their respective smartphones.

To prolong battery life, a lead oxide coating is used on the cathode. This improves the electrochemical stability and conductivity of the battery. In the course of experiments, a method was found for printing such batteries. The current collector, zinc anode, cathode and separator are screen printed layer by layer onto a chemically stable polymer film with a melting point of about 200 ° C.

In this way, they managed to create a flexible, expandable battery with a density of 50 milliamps per square centimeter.
