Korean Scientists have invented a flexible battery that can be bent and folded. The invention will help mobile phone users fold their device in half or keep it rolled up in their pocket, according to the Daily Mail.
The ‘high-performance flexible all-solid-state battery’, developed by the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, is constant enough to power users’ phones while still remaining stable, said Professor Keon Jae Lee who led the team.
The folded battery will soon bring different shaped electronic devices, think people close to the invention.
“The technological advance of thin and light flexible display has encouraged the development of flexible batteries with a high power density and thermal stability,” said a spokesperson of the team.
“Although rechargeable lithium-ion batteries have been regarded as a strong candidate for a high-performance flexible energy source, compliant electrodes for bendable LIBs are restricted to only a few materials, such as organic materials or micro-structured inorganic materials mixed with polymer binders,” the scientists told the Daily Mail.
