  • Samsung working on Lithium-Ion battery technology to double battery life!

Silicone anodes along with graphene layers may allow the Samsung batteries to last more than 21 hours.

As the functions in smartphones have become more diverse and useful, the battery life on the other hand has diminished. The latest range of smartphones by Samsung, such as the Galaxy S6 only last through the day and needs to be plugged in by the end of the day. 

However the research at Samsung may has found a solution to the small battery life issue. The answer to all the small battery life issues may be the lithium-ion battery technology and if developed by Samsung it may provide lasting power to the smartphones.

Scientists have been considering adding silicone anodes into batteries for a long time, however adding silicone makes the longevity of the battery to suffer as it may exhaust out sooner than the ones we use currently.

But Samsung has supposedly even discovered the secret to this problem as adding a graphene layer on top of the battery may allow it to retain its longevity and its density. 

The initial experiment models of the lithium ion batteries produced by Samsung were 1.5 to 1.8 times denser than the batteries present in smartphones today. Samsung is currently further working on testing the battery and on how to make it thinner as in to fit in the smartphone. 

Usually android phone batteries such as that of Samsung only work for about 12 hours before they run out. If the lithium-ion battery technology is developed the Samsung users may even have a battery life of up to 21 hours. So if for gets to plug in their cell phone at the end of the night they may not have to worry about the battery dying.

The lithium-ion batteries are still in the research phase and may not come out in Samsung phones such as in the Galaxy S7 for quite some time.
