Samsung finds a key technology, you won’t be afraid of the shortage of battery life any more

Korean electronics giant Samsung will change the battery type, which aims to increase long-term battery life and also maintain battery capacity for up to 5 years.

This new battery is characterized by excellent features and outstanding specifications and is arguably above average in performance for lithium-ion batteries in general. This idea arose because Samsung realized that the battery life of their smartphones, especially the Galaxy series, has a power that decreases rapidly over time.

From the results of analysis conducted by Samsung on the Galaxy series, battery performance loses up to 20% of its original capacity every one year if used normally. The latest generation battery, the Galaxy S8 series, has decreased by about 5% from its original capacity after one year of use.


And the research team is rumored to have discovered a new battery technology that will be used in future Galaxy series phones and Galaxy S8 series and its newest series, and technically Samsung can solve the battery degradation problem forever.

According to reports, a team of scientists from the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST) has discovered a new material that helps the battery retain 95% of its original capacity for 5 years or more.

It is known that the negative terminals in today’s batteries use a material called Polyvinylidene Fluoride, and after being recharged for 500 times, they lose about 35% of their original capacity, which results in a reduced battery life after a year or two.


Its replacement technology uses Bis-imino-acenaphthenequinone-Paraphenylene (BP) which allows the battery to retain 95% of the original battery capacity for more than 1700 recharges, the equivalent of five years or more.

Meanwhile, Professor Nuriyoshi Matsumi, who led the research, said that this technology will help develop products for long-term use, and encourage consumers to buy Samsung products that will also rely on batteries.
