Remixed Li-ion Battery Gives More Energy

Researchers at the Georgia Institute for Technology have developed a lithium-ion battery with a few key chemical changes that allow it to charge itself when compressed or flexed.

By substituting the plastic barrier that contains the battery electrolyte with a layer of piezoelectric material called PVDF (the component that converts motion into energy), the team has created a hybrid battery that converts movement into both electric and chemical energy.

By creating a hybrid battery that can directly influence the flow of ions within itself, the researchers can skip the charging circuit entirely, creating a far more efficient means of capturing mechanical energy.
