IMPROVEMENTS TO SELF-CHARGING BATTERIES USING NANOCOMPOSITE FILM

In 2012, a professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology developed the first self-charging battery pack. Instead of requiring re-charging by plugging it into an electrical outlet, these special battery packs are able to charge by manipulating the lithum ions in the battery. Researchers at the institute have made recent advancements in their inventions, enabling the battery pack to charge even more efficiently. By using nanocomposite film in order to accomplish this goal, researchers were also able to increase the storage capacity of the batteries, as well. 24
