The article discusses the types of rechargeable batteries used in smartphones, specifically lithium-ion (Li-ion) and lithium-polymer (Li-po) batteries. Li-ion batteries are currently the most popular type of phone battery for most iPhone and Samsung phone models.
However, Li-po batteries are becoming more popular with major brands such as Samsung and Xiaomi as they release more powerful models.
Yet while wrestling among the lithium battery family continues, sodium-ion batteries (Na-ion) have quietly emerged as another new candidate that is likely to take the rechargeable battery industry by storm.
DG Innovate plc (LON:DGI) is an advanced research and development company pioneering sustainable and environmentally considerate improvements to electric mobility and storage, using abundant materials and the best engineering and scientific practices.
DG Innovate’s EBT is focused on the development of a family of hard carbon anode materials produced from sustainable bio-waste. The materials are primarily intended for use in sodium-ion batteries but can also be used in lithium-ion batteries
