Charge your mobile phone in one minute with this battery

April 7, 2015: With technology, we have been able to bring an entire universe on our palm. Whether to shop or to browse work emails, our life is now depend on smartphone. But, charging doesn't last as long as we expect it to be, and charging back full too take at least 30 minutes to an hour for a lithium battery. So, scientists at Stanford University came up with an innovative idea to solve this problem, they have developed a new type of aluminum-ion battery that charges just in one minute. How cool is that?

Hongie Dai, professor of chemistry at Stanford, said: "We have developed a rechargeable aluminium battery that may replace existing storage devices, such as alkaline batteries, which are bad for the environment, and lithium-ion batteries, which occasionally burst into flames." He further adds, "Our new battery won't catch fire, even if you drill through it. Lithium batteries can go off in an unpredictable manner - in the air, the car or in your pocket."

Apart from safety factors, the scientist claims it will transform the battery performance with "unprecedented charging time" down to one minute.

"Another feature of the aluminium battery is flexibility. You can bend it and fold it, so it has the potential for use in flexible electronic device. Aluminium is also a cheaper metal than lithium.", says Ming Gong, co-lead author of the journal Nature study published in his article.
