Wirelessly charging your phone, while highly convenient, risks depleting the life of devices using typical lithium-ion batteries (LIBs), report researchers.
Manufacturer of lithium-ion battery technology, Hyperdrive Innovation, has opened the UK’s largest independent battery manufacturing facility in Sunderland today, which will support the Government’s industrial strategy and 2050 carbon neutral target.
Researchers at WMG at the University of Warwick have found that use of inductive charging, whilst highly convenient, risks depleting the life of mobile phones using typical LIBs (Lithium-ion batteries)
Lithium-ion batteries are inherently dangerous. Short circuits, mechanical abuse, battery overcharging, and design and manufacturing flaws can all result in a fire or explosion. In 2017
So why do batteries swell? Lithium-ion batteries create a chemical reaction that generates power for modern electronics. However, as a battery ages the chemical reaction that occurs inside the battery no longer completes as intended, which results in the creation of gas. In more technical terms
