Sounds cool. But a slim phone/gadget is not my idea of "best use".
I'd forget it was in a pocket and lean on it, I expect.
I can only wonder how long those will last, and by that I mean both battery life and time before something breaks.
Sounds like the disposable mobile phone is just around the corner....
Looking forward to the iScroll.
that flexible Nokia phone concept anyone?
Never mind a flexible device, what about a battery that gets painted on the inside of the casing of your mobile or laptop?
mnnnnnn... electric cars...
The question is how many volts at what amperage and how long does it last before recharging.
Lol, like they're not already?!?!?
a "higher energy densitie than existing thin battery types" good wording, in other words, probably not comparable to non-thin batteries.
You're right, it needs an application to rock my boat.
meh, they do something thin and you instantly think in even thinner devices!!
just improve the technology, then take 20 of this and put then together to make a smartphone that actually last enough to make calls and watch videos or movies while traveling and videoconferencing, all in one charge, there, that's a good use of the technology
now paper not only cut you but will taser you at the same time.
I'm with paisa666 on this one. It may well help move existing batteries on
Good catch on the wording there.
If you put this in a flexible device and combine it with something that would charge the battery when flexed ... I wonder how long before that gets patented.
Cool so we will see throw away paper phones like on Ultra Violet and ePaper like we see on Caprica. Now that would be cool.
I just hope this means that if I use this to make a battery the same size as one that exists now it will store more power...
No, your comparably chunky phone battery will probably last longer than a battery as thin as paper. Thats just common sense. But you can stack paper on top of eachother, and suddenly youve got a battery the same size as your current one but providing much more power.
Eh... Energy density my friend, energy density. Less power per unit volume = less power at any volume. Think wood blocks vs lead blocks.
Considering "normal" round batteries (like AA or AAA cells) consist of rolled material as well, I think they'd have worded it differently if they could compete with that and not with "existing thin battery types"
But maybe they'll surprise us
