Colorado, Mar 6, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Nowadays people need to depend on batteries for using a huge number of appliances and gadgets daily. However, batteries need to be changed and even rechargeable batteries reach the end of their life after a certain number of usage. Most of the present generation batteries use chemicals to conserve electricity. However, the experience of changing and recharging batteries may change forever for the products invented by a company named Infinite Power Solutions. It is based in Littleton, Colorado. The company has developed thin film batteries which have been developed on solid state technology.
The main difference of these solid state batteries with conventional batteries is that the former does not leak energy when not used. On the contrary, these batteries can retain almost 100% of their charge. Tim Bradow, the VP of the company is of the opinion that even after 20 years of purchase the users can make use of these batteries. According to him, the thin film technology is capable enough to provide power to a lot of wireless sensor based devices like smoke detectors and remote controllers. If his estimates are right, then the thin film batteries might be sold within a year and they can be used for cell phones and laptops easily.
While a number of companies are experimenting with these batteries, IPS has made advancements. This new technology is essential for wide implementation of clean and green energy. However, for the average users, the convenience of charging the batteries less and using a battery for longer duration is of utmost importance.
