One thing preventing wide adoption of certain technologies is energy storage. Particularly, batteries.
Teams around the 🌐 are working to develop really cool batteries. Batteries that can power electric vehicles. Your phone can eventually last for 5 days on a charge.
Now read about solid state battery technology, what is it?
A Solid State Battery is a rechargeable battery technology which uses solids as electrolytes as opposed to liquids/gels in a conventional Lithium Ion Battery (LIB).
Why solid state battery technology?
They are expected to be better than Lithium-Ion Batteries (LIBs) in the following:
Greater storage capacity
Very little probability of exploding
Faster charge time
Greater energy densities
All these are a result of a simpler design and the use of certain solids as electrolytes. Solid state batteries are projected to eventual replace LIBs completely by 2030.
LIBs are limited due to certain reasons:
Their electrolytes are combustible, especialy when exposed to humid air. A case of this was seen in the Samsung Note 7 due to poor design.
They develop internal structures called dendrites which limit their efficiency over time. They charge for longer while storing less energy.
They are mainly 2 dimensional, limiting the travel distances of lithium ions.
The Energy Density of a battery is energy stored by a battery per unit volume. It can be viewed as a way of comparing different batteries. Generally, LIBs have lesser energy densities than their solid state counterparts.
