Apple continues to try to rectify its Achilles heel, meaning the battery life of your iPhone in the best possible way. And although inductive wireless load or the new SLP design will help improve its performance, it has just acquired a machine developed by Tesla capable of analysing the charge and discharge cycles and optimise it so that its useful life is twice that of the batteries Current.
Recently, Jeff Dahn, the recognised researcher of the Tesla team – the electric car manufacturer – announced the development of this new technology in their machines and that users would also see the results within 4 years. Well, Apple has also acquired the machinery to develop them. The new batteries would continue to use Li-ion cell technology used in electrical appliances and the electric car.
Working to accurately monitor load cycles to increase your life and what factors affect its deterioration is a great news, both for the future of the electric car and for users of Apple products, we will enjoy a few devices That will not leave us thrown throughout the day.
From their website they have tried to describe their investigations so that we know the process of analysis and development:
OUR PRECISION CHARGING SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN DESIGNED TO MEASURE THE CULOMBIC EFFICIENCY OF CELLS, WHICH TYPICALLY HAVE AN ACCURACY OF BETWEEN 10 PPM AND 50 PPM. THESE SYSTEMS HAVE 2 AMPS MAXIMUM CURRENT AND A VOLTAGE RANGE OF 0 TO 5V WITH AN INTEGRATED TEMPERATURE SENSOR ON EACH CHANNEL.
During a talk at MIT, Jeff Dahn confirmed that Apple was one of the customers of Novonix, the division specialising in battery development. Although 4 years is a long time and obviously will not be in time for the iPhone 8, sooner than we think we can enjoy them.
