Sources from the industry of motorsport announced the arrival of a new technology to replace the batteries lithium-ion already employed in some models. This new technology promises to to improve the performance both in autonomy and in reliability.
By now, there are no exact dates of your arrival; or even knows about what will be their cost, or what models of car can be installed. However, do know about what types of technologies are being designed and what yields can reach; which puts into question the currently employed.
The hybrid models in the beginning, used batteries whose composition is based on lead-acid (Pb), and Nickel-Cadmium (NiCd). The latest generation of electric motors adopt battery whose compound, the lithium-ion batteries, significantly improving the previous. So much so that virtually no manufacturer dares to use another technology.
however, all of this seems like it’s going to change and very soon. The Spanish company “Graphenano”, in collaboration with the chinese partner “Chint”, has patented a battery composed of a polymer-graphene. This material superconducting the electricity, formed by atoms of pure carbon, is capable of developing a autonomy of an electric car superior to the 800 kilometers.
The advantages of graphene are multiple and really relevant. The charging time could be as little as 5 minutes, while the space occupied is reduced between 20 and 30%. Their physical characteristics are striking: transparent, high thermal and electrical conductivity. In addition, it is lightweight and also able to generate by themselves electricity to be reached by the particles that make up light.
With respect to the durability, its useful life is 4 times higher to that of a lithium-ion battery and, in case outside little, the load may be inductive.
Although many suspected, it reaffirms the splendid future that will have the batteries. On this occasion, it will be the graphene of the great protagonist. One compound that has received the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2010, it portends a good future in the coming years in the automotive industry.
