Scientists have made yet another efficient development to make batteries made with aluminium filled capsule that could very well be fully charged in six minutes.
Surprising as it sounds, the battery has 4 times the capacity as the normal lithium ion batteries and degrades very little over the time.
This battery uses nano particles. The shell is made out of titanium dioxide wrapped with aluminium as the batteries negative electrodes.
Researchers in Massachusetts Institute of technology and Tsinghua University in Beijing found that the particles closed inside could shrink and expand freely by encasing it.
They tried out using aluminium with lithium ions previously but failed and now they have succeeded.
Aluminium is a high capacity metal that shrinks and expands according to the environment its exposed to , Therefore, compared to the reported shedding of the lithium ions it can actually reduce battery life.
