Lab Accident Led To Discovery Of A Battery That Could Last Up To 400 Years...

University of California, Irvine researchers were just trying to create better nanowires as a substitute for normal rechargeable batteries when they accidentally developed a rechargeable battery that could last up to 400 years.

Nanowires are fragile and tend to give up after several charges but Nanowires are also good conductors because they contain a lot of surface area to hold electrons.

This is the reason why the team of PhD Student Mya Le Thai was researching the substances of nanowires made from gold that is enclosed in a special electrolyte gel…

In a series of tests, the team made a staggering discovery: The battery survived for 200,000 charge cycles in just three months without losing any performance. This battery could also potentially power an ordinary smartphone and laptop for 400 years.

“That was crazy”, said Reginald Penner, the leader of the chemistry faculty of the University. “Usually these Batteries decline rapidly after only five or six thousand cycles, seven thousand at the most.”…

The scientists are still not sure why the combination of the gold wires and gel makes a super battery. But since gold is an expensive material, the researchers are trying out some few alternatives before they start generating a marketable product. This is why we still don’t know if we can use these for our smartphones, but these first test certainly looks promising (source).

NO! A battery that can be recharged 400 years not a battery that runs on one charge that long. Fucking clickbait

    well . . everybody’s got something to hide except me & my monkey. Or to put it another way . . the work of the world does not wait for perfect people

    Most batteries fail after 10 years. Lasting 400 years is huge.

    It didn’t say it holds a charge or produces current from a single charge for 400 years.

    Lighten up, cupcake.

    Fuck off. People who read it are going to think it last that long not that you can recharge it that much. Use your brain.

    Reply

    Yes, it lasts that long. Not that it holds a charge that long. Use your brain, or at least open your mind to the concept that you may not have read it the way it was intended.

    I read it right. It’s called clickbait. They do this all the time.

They cant prove it because its only a probability there’s no proof

Watch the battery industry attack you and put you out of business.

Thats something the consumers will never see on the market.

Reply

Now they will Rape us for it’s value. Next

It’ll cost $400,000 per battery and nothing only takes 1.

Reply

Of course they’ll never make it to market!

Reply

    Of course….Because they don’t Exist!?

I wish Apple would use it in their phones.

I care more about how
long each charge lasts

    Look at my other Post…..Less than a Minute!?

They didn’t have 400 years to test it, and whoever said LED lights have a 1000 year long lifespan are wrong.

    I thought it was a 1000Hrs

anche se esiste figurati se la commercializzano, in un mondo dove tutto si deve rompere dopo poco.ad esempio le pile al litio se avessero un diverso settaggio di carica-scarica durerebbero più di 10 anni….ma han tarato i relè in maniera tale che dopo 100 cicli sian da buttare…..(sarebbero da usare tra il 20 e l’80% della carica per andargli in culo!!)

Sounds like BULLSHIT!..Quote-‘The battery survived for 200,000 charge cycles in just three months without losing any performance. This battery could also potentially power an ordinary smartphone and laptop for 400 years.’ HOW? Charge and Discharge 200,000 times in 3 months, yet can still power a Laptop for 400 Years? …DUH!! 200,000*3mths*30days*24hrs*60mins=1.5432 Charge/Discharge per minute??? HOW, did they do that? Come on Ecosnippets Check your sources, and do the Maths, Your starting to look like Fools!

Yeah, like THAT won’t be snapped up and put on a shelf to keep it off the market . . .

    we need some open source MOFOs to release the secret. How could it possibly . . . POSSIBLY work?

My thought exactly, Tom Gossard.

So true Tom Gossard.

Don’t sell the technology to the battery industry. They will probably bury the idea, since there is more profit in batteries that die.

now waiting a decade for she get mass produced & commercialised at affordable price…
anyhow there is hope for the future 🙂

Wonderfull lets save the planet.

Wait for it– how long till it gets bought out and destroyed by competitors.

Reply

    this was my immediate worry

This story is 2 years old, how about an update? 🙂

watch as it vanishes. Back in the 80s Popular mechanics would often have stories about new breakthroughs, one was a battery made of glass, completely recyclable and recharable, good luck finding anything about it today on the net its been “wiped” from human conciousness, and sits on a shelf in a companies safe. this is how we are all controlled and manipulaed, tied to a meter and made to pay and pay every day of our existance on this planet. I for one, am over this game.

It won’t be launched in the market. U can’t earn recuringly out of it.

Reply

They’ll squash it.

Reply

It’s an accident because there’s no profit in it. ?

The battery that’ll take a beating.

Reply

What about the current? Or voltage delivered.

Living in Perú, knowing where gold comes from makes me bleed a little every time I read about use of gold, and yet (if true) that might be a more useful and longer lasting use case than many others..

They’ll never let it go to market.

I take two 🙂

    for your handy?

Some big company will come along and buy the patent and bury it

…..I don’t believe it….js..

Elon says he’s coming up with the million mile battery. Maybe he bought the tech.

The battery survived for 200,000 charge cycles in just three months ??
3 months equals approx: 90 days.
90 days, by 24 hrs = 2160 hrs.
2160 hrs by 60 minutes = 129,600 minutes.
200,000 cycles in 129,600 minutes = .648 minutes.
.648 mins by 60 seconds = 38.88 seconds.
38.88 seconds to Charge and Discharge ??
Either a CRAP battery, or TOTAL BULL***T !!?
