Japanese mobile manufacturer NTT Docomo has claimed to produce a prototype battery, which can take full charge in just 10 minutes. NTT exhibited the new announced battery and the charger at CEATEC in Tokyo and Engadget reported all the details.
The prototype that has been announced by NTT Docomo is an external lithium-ion battery sleeve, which gets attached to the back side of a mobile phone. The battery is capable of functioning only in a Japanese exclusive mobile phone the NEC’s Medias Android smartphone. But even though there are restrictions, the assurance of a 10 minute battery recharge no doubt fascinates the users.
The secret behind the creation of that battery is that NTT has thrust a lot more juice through the charger into the battery at once. The demo exhibited an amp meter connected to a standard charger as well as one connected to the prototype device. While the pre – production model of the battery boasted 5.86 amps the new standard AC adapter is capable to push .55 amps. That’s how more than 10.5 times more power is being pushed to the battery.
According to the tech blog the model, presented by the Japanese mobile provider NTT Docomo is likely an early prototype and could use some minor changes in terms of aesthetics. In addition NTT had no idea about the right time of the battery’s moving into production and discovering its way to consumers. They only kept saying that the unit would hit the market as soon as possible.
Last month we got a report of a jelly based lithium battery created by Leeds researchers. They claimed that the jelly based lithium battery could make the future of the batteries safer, cheaper, smaller and more powerful. They have also claimed that the new technology could make thinner and lighter notebook computers and more efficient batteries for electric cars.
