I believe that many people have encountered the embarrassing situation of insufficient mobile phone battery power and unable to find a place to recharge when they were out for fun or shopping.
With the advent of the 5G communication era, a new generation of consumer electronic products is developing rapidly. Behind the innovation of high-speed, large-capacity, and low-latency communication technology, the demand for equipment carrying power will also increase.
So, in the face of the current rising demand for power-carrying equipment, what new research developments are there in lithium battery technology suitable for consumer electronic devices? Where will the future direction of battery technology innovation go?
Next, GREPOW Battery will share with you the challenges and subversions of consumer electronic battery technology brought about by the arrival of the 5G communication era.
the IoT is inseparable from strong “power” in the 5G era
Tablet computers, Bluetooth speakers, smartphones, consumer robots… the types of consumer electronic products continue to increase. On the one hand, the emergence of these consumer products brings people a real and convenient experience; on the other hand, people will often The actual users who have seen such products complain that the products are unsatisfactory in one way or another.
The advent of the 5G era is not just about changing network speeds as simple as a series of power support systems. If the Internet connects people and things more closely, then the arrival of the 5G era will not only increase the speed of this connection but also enable basic coordination between things.
The mobile phone is out of power and meets an emergency. At this time, we especially hope to have a mobile phone battery with a lot of power. At present, most of the batteries used in mobile electronic products such as mobile phones and tablet computers on the market are mostly lithium-ion batteries. Although designers have been using various methods to increase the capacity of the batteries, they are in line with the rapid innovation of consumer electronics. Compared, it still makes people feel more exhausted.
The 5G era of the Internet of Everything will undoubtedly drive the demand for hardware performance of various mobile devices, including mobile phones, wearable electronic products, Internet of Things devices, drones, and so on. In this context, whether the battery’s endurance can support the high-speed computing demand brought by 5G will be an important issue worthy of attention.
Industrial innovation requires novel batteries
Currently, the more mature battery in the 3c market is lithium cobalt oxide, which is also the most widely used cathode material in the consumer electronics market. At present, the mainstream commercial lithium battery cathode materials on the market mainly include lithium cobalt oxide, lithium manganate, lithium iron phosphate, ternary materials (lithium nickel cobalt manganate, lithium nickel cobalt aluminate), etc. The latter three main requirements In power batteries, lithium cobalt oxide is more used in consumer electronics.
For consumer electronic batteries, the input and output performance of lithium-ion batteries mainly depends on the structure and performance of the internal materials of the battery, including negative electrode materials, electrolytes, separators, and positive electrode materials. The lithium cobalt oxide battery has the advantages of high specific gravity, high volume, and high energy density, so it has become the best choice for consumer electronic products.
However, with the advent of the 5G era, consumer electronics products continue to introduce new ones, and people’s demand for battery capacity is also rising linearly, requiring battery products with greater flexibility, longer running time, lower cost, and higher Security. The characteristics of consumer electronic devices have also put forward more stringent requirements on the new generation of battery technology. The contradiction between the continuous miniaturization of the volume and the battery capacity, the contradiction between the charging and discharging speed and the number of charging and discharging, etc. are all urgently needed to be resolved. The problem.
For companies, in addition to working hard on the stability and service life of batteries under the current technical framework, they also need to have a forward-looking sense of technological revolution and continue to increase the exploration and research of new materials and novel battery technologies. Be invincible when 5G comes.
In addition, as the new consumer electronics industry represented by wearable devices continues to increase, the demand for consumer lithium batteries is also increasing. Wearable devices usually use solid-state lithium battery ultra-thin battery technology. The technology and craftsmanship are basically mature, such as wearable devices such as bank cards, VR, and bracelets. According to the forecast of iiMedia Consulting, the demand for lithium batteries in the VR industry alone is expected to exceed 55 billion yuan by 2020.
Revolutionary battery technology
When it comes to the future of consumer lithium batteries, there will be two major development trends: one is technological innovation, such as increasing research on the replacement of positive and negative materials, to meet the dual requirements of consumer users for battery volume and capacity; the second is safety Performance requires a more cautious attitude when new high-capacity, high-density battery technologies move from the laboratory to the commercial market.
At present, in order to meet the user’s demand for battery life indicators on the market, the current consumer electronics merchants themselves are also trying to improve the battery experience from many aspects, such as fast charging technology. GREPOW batteries have excellent performance in this area and can be achieved 3C and 5C fast charge.
Fast charging technology uses a high-voltage current. By increasing the charging voltage, the charging rate of the device is finally increased, thereby shortening the charging time of the device, and thus the charging speed has been significantly improved.
In addition to fast charging technology, GREPOW’s new novel shaped batteries can be customized according to your device. The special shape can make full use of the space of the device, thereby increasing the battery capacity.
With the advent of the 5G era, high-definition audio-visual calls and high-power IoT applications will inevitably add unimaginable pressure to consumer electronics such as mobile phones. On the eve of the urgent need for systematic changes in battery technology, in addition to the fast-charging technology and special-shaped novel batteries just mentioned, it is also necessary to try new models to solve the problem of device battery life.
