Samsung, the smartphone manufacturer, is amongst the few cell phone companies out there that manufacture the majority of their components in-house. From the chipset to the display and even the battery so it is quite interesting to note this new bit of information regarding an innovation in their battery making process.
The South Korean giant has developed a new process that allows them to coat batteries with graphene. This is a highly conductive material that is grown directly on the silicon carbide substrate that is then combined with a lithium ion battery. The resulting battery lasts up to 1.5-1.8 times longer than a standard battery. The layered structure of the graphene on the battery is showing gains that could almost double battery life. This development has far reaching ramifications as it can be applied at practically any use case scenario involving batteries. From smartphones to electric vehicles, the development has the potential to be a major win for consumers all around. Of course, like any technological development, it will still take a few years before it can be commercialized which means that you probably shouldn’t hold out for a Samsung Galaxy device packing said technology anytime soon.
Hello Guys ,These Day’s Every one have smart phones and we using smartly these devises But if you talk about Battery Life then every one concerned about it.I know you are installed lots of battery saver app in your phone to save your battery life.But If you try our battery saving tips then i am sure you increase Your smartphone battery life’s.
1- So First Tip is Here ,If you are smart phone user you know Phone over heating Problems and It is the great enemy of smart phones batteries so always prevent your phone to overheat.
2- According to experts, keep in mind that do not put your phone on car dash board and also prevents it for direct sunlight.
3-Never Use local power Banks or fake chargers ,these power banks charge your mobile very fast no doubt but they also damage your battery life very fast so next time when you going to buy charger or power bank buy only branded items.
4-One more important Thing which must be remember do’t use your phone while charging it means if you plug the charger in power slot then avoid to use phone.If you use phone at same time when it is charging then it damage power life of batteries.
5-When Phone is charging do’t play heavy or graphics games.It should also be avoided as it causes damage to the phone and the battery temperature increases. Experts believe that the ideal temperature for the phone to charge 20 to 30 degrees Celsius.
6–According To experts it is not necessary To charge your mobile 100 % every time or Only charge when your Battery is 0 % . Charge it right time according to your need and one more thing keep the phone charging and going to sleep is also reduce battery life so avoid it.
7-Last But Important Things some peoples use their phone until it does not reach critical level so avoid such habit, Put your phone on the charging before it comes to 10 percent .
There is lots more points which save your Batteries life But If you Follow This 7 Tips then i hope you Find your battery life increase and you use your smart phones batteries longer.
The speed at which development has taken place in the smart devices over the last few years is simply phenomenal, but a key component of these smart devices still lags behind. Yes, we are talking about the batteries. Apart from the marginal software-based optimisations, all device manufacturers can do these days is pack a bigger battery to offer more up-time as there are simply no breakthroughs happening in the battery tech.
Now, The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Google has entered the fray to develop better batteries. The company has tasked a team led by former Apple Inc. battery expert Dr. Ramesh Bhardwaj in its Google X labs to come up with new battery technologies. The team was originally set-up in late-2012 to test batteries from other makers for Google devices, but the search giant changed its mandate a year later to look for new technologies that can be developed within the company.
The team is small but that’s how most projects work in Google X Labs. If it is able to come up with some significant results, Google will surely expand them and move them outside Google X.
According WSJ sources, Dr. Bhardwaj’s team is trying to advance lithium-ion technology and the cutting-edge solid-state batteries for consumer devices. Other details are not available at this point, but Google will let us (and the world) know once it has something concrete to share.
There’s no such thing as free — especially when it comes to smartphone apps! A new study by a team, including an Indian-American engineer, reinforces this conventional wisdom. “Ads in ‘free’ apps drain your phone’s battery faster, cause it to run slower, and use more data,” said William Halfond, co-corresponding author of the study.
The findings of the team will be presented at the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE) in Italy in May. The researchers found that apps with ads use an average of 16 percent more energy. That lowers the battery life of a smartphone from 2.5 to 2.1 hours on average.
“A phone’s Central Processing Unit (CPU) is like its brain. Ads eat up a lot of that brainpower, slowing it down. “Apps with ads take up an average of 48 percent more CPU time — 22 percent more memory use and 56 percent greater CPU utilization,” explained co-researcher Meiyappan Nagappan from Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), New York.
The team compared 21 top apps from the past year and measured their effect on phones using analysis tools loaded onto a Samsung Galaxy SII smartphone. Since the ads themselves are content that has to be downloaded, apps with ads cause smartphones to use much more data — up to 100 percent more, in some cases.
On an average, these apps use around 79 percent more of the expensive network data, the study found. The researchers hoped app developers would take note of this study. “Right now, they’re kind of clueless,” Halfond said.
Scientists at the Sungkyunkwan University, South Korea have created a double-layered fabric out of silver-coated woven textile that can charge the battery of a mobile phone. The foldable patch of fabric wrapped around your wrist can gather enough energy from your arm movement.
The new fabric relies on the triboelectric effect, which occurs with certain materials become electrically charged after coming into fricative contact with a different material. Electrons are transferred from one material to the other, causing one material to build up a positive charge, while the other gets a negative charge. In a demonstration, researchers attached the generator on a jacket sleeve and embedded six LEDs, a small liquid-crystal display and a keyless car remote control in the jacket.
When the wearer moved his arms or wrist, the fabric turned each gadget on one at a time. The researchers are testing more materials for the generator that could potentially yield even more power. The technology will become extremely popular with the proliferation of wearable technology, Discovery News reported.
