Sila Technologies and Angstron Materials have developed a new lithium-silicon battery technology. In the next few years, it can increase the power of mobile phone, car, smart watch batteries by 30% or more. Production is ready.
The core of the new technology is "anode manufacturing", which is mainly made of silicon. The anode is the main component of the battery. The current battery anode is made of graphite, and the new anode is made of silicon, which can store more power. However, in the real world, silicon anodes are often fragile or have a short life, which is difficult to promote.
Sila Technologies has developed a prototype product that successfully addresses these issues by fusing silicon with graphite nanoparticles to make the product more durable. Sila Technologies also said that if they use the new technology they have developed, batteries can store 20-40% more electricity than today's lithium-ion batteries.
