We get very disappoint when we see just after taking around 300 to 400 consecutive shots of different subjects the battery of the camera gets drained. However, at the same time it is not simple to find the electricity source to get our camera battery charged again. Many photographers keep extra batteries in their kit, but sometimes shooting for long hours needs more number of batteries and their one to two extra batteries are not sufficient.
How good it would be if our camera gets charged just in minutes and we can go for hours and hours shooting unstoppable. Well…. your time to smile now because your wish is near about to complete and we will also say—you need to be ready to welcome this new technology that keeps your battery remain charged for long time in charging just for seconds.
Now let us describe this new technology that amazes us much more: Actually, the research team has gone through an extensive research for creating flexible supercapacitors that can store more energy and be charged in just couple of seconds to minute, which is faster than current battery technology and lasts for days.
Here is the quote from a member of University of Central Florida (UCF) research team:
“You could charge your mobile phone in a few seconds and you wouldn’t need to charge it again for over a week,”
The batteries that are integrated into the camera using chemical reactions, but Supercapacitors store electricity statically on the surface of the material as a result it get charged much quickly. By the way, this is not the first research on this field. The Previous research used graphene for this purpose, but it was not suitable and ended up with unhealthy success. Instead of using graphene, they now upgraded their research process and tried unique way to execute project. As they said, they wrapped Two-Dimensional metal materials (TMDs) just a few atoms thick around highly-conductive one dimensional nanowires, letting electrons pass quickly from the core to the shell that produces high energy and power density.
“We developed a simple chemical synthesis approach so we can very nicely integrate the existing materials with the two-dimensional materials,” Jung says.
At the present time, the projects is not ready for commercialization, which means this is still under the developing stage and when it grows means comes available will be boon to both Smartphone and cameras as well.
