Finally here’s the solution to never-ending issue of charging the battery , thinker tank of IIT Mandi have developed a ‘perfect’ battery that can store large amounts of energy, and be charged rapidly and repeatedly.
The lithium-ion battery that now powers almost all our consumer electronics devices such as mobile phones, laptops and even electric cars, has its own limitations. One of the disadvantages with batteries is that charging takes a lot of time, which results in extended down-times of operation. In addition, durability is another major concern.
Viswanath Balakrishnan, Associate Professor, School of Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Mandi, and his research scholar, Piyush Avasthi, have recently developed aligned carbon nanotube-based electrodes that could enable high energy supercapacitors.
