Flexible batteries to pave way for bendable smartphones
London: Researchers in South Korea have developed a flexible battery, which could be a step towards the development of flexible smartphones.
The team, from the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, say they have developed a “fluid-like” polymer electrolyte that is more flexible than a traditional battery, the Telegraph reported.
According to the researchers, the new system is more stable than conventional batteries.
A spokesman for the Korean science ministry told the Korean Joongang Daily said that conventional lithium-ion batteries that use liquefied electrolytes had safety problems as the film that separates the electrolytes may melt under heat, in which case the positive and negative elements may come in contact, causing an explosion.
