The short battery life is the number one complaint when it comes to smartphones and laptops. As cordless tools , having to ' bind us ' to the current seems a nuisance. And while researchers seem to try to advance the field of wireless charging rather than extend the durability of these .
But researchers at the University of California have invented a battery base gold nanowires that can be recharged hundreds of miles times. A significant leap towards a replacement battery that is not required.
The nanowires are perfect for storage and electrical transmission. highly conductive and much thinner than a human hair, which can be stacked to provide a large surface area for electron transfer. Unfortunately, the nanowires are very fragile and are not very friendly of charge-discharge cycles.
