new battery to last 400 times longer
One of the many monopoly companies that Kenyans have learned to hate is KPLC. This starts with rationing, frequent blackouts, tokens name them. A new technology has been invented to save you from this situation, but don't be in hurry, you will need KPLC to power this new technology. But you will not always rely on KPLC, because your device will always have power 400 times more than what you currently have.

A new technology of battery-making may potentially enable these energy sources to last 400 times longer than usual, a new study has found.

The technology makes use of a nanowire-based material that can be recharged for thousands of times, paving the way for the possibility that battery replacement may not be required anymore.

Nanowires

Nanowires are very tiny conductors that have long been a subject of battery-making production. This is because of their extremely thin structure, high conductivity and big surface area for the transmission and storage of electrons.

The main hindrances to nanowire-based batteries are the issues of fragility and inability to endure periodic recharging, discharging and cycling. When these nanowires are placed in ordinary lithium-ion batteries, they spread and become frail, resulting in cracks.
