Without batteries, it could be argued that the world we know today would be a very different place. And one form of battery has dominated the market for over a decade now — lithium-ion.
But these batteries have some inherent problems (like limited life spans) and are far from being an "environmentally-friendly" solution to powering portable devices. As we have become ever more reliant on things like smartphones, wouldn't it be great if the batteries that power them could last the test of time?
That is where emerging solid-state technology could, quite frankly, revolutionize the world of batteries. This is an exciting and fast-developing field and one we will all, hopefully, benefit from in the not too distant future.
