U.S scientist claimed that they designed a battery that is long-lasting, cheap and flexible. The aluminum made battery will charge the Smartphone in one minute.
The scientist are positive that in near future the lithium-ion battery will soon be replaced by Aluminum-ion, with this short period recharging time the battery is also safer than existing lithium-ion battery which burst into flames every now and then.
Professors from the Stanford University in California Hongie Dai with his team accidently discovered that graphite acts like a catalyst when exposed to aluminum.
Dai said that Lithium-ion batteries are highly flammable if any one drills through it on the other hand the aluminum battery will not catch on fire plus it is flexible and durable.
Lithium-ion batteries can be charged around 1,000 times while the new aluminum battery was observed charging 7,500 times.
A plan is also on its way to use the batteries to store energy in electrical grid stations.
