UC Irvine students create lithium ion battery that lasts eternity

According to University of California Irvine, UCI doctoral candidate Mya Le Thai created nanowire-based battery material that can be recharged hundreds of thousands of times, moving us closer to a battery that would never require replacement.

Ms. Thai invented the nanowire by “playing around, and she coated this whole thing with a very thin gel layer and started to cycle it.” – Penner, chair of UCI’s chemistry department


The invention was published at American Chemical Society’s Energy Letters.



There is another research which has proven that lithium-ion cells can be made stable as well.


Will Apple or Samsung ever use this lithium ion battery that can last the life-time of any device it powers?


I seriously doubt it. Apple needs to sell its phone to consumers every 2 yrs. Apple nor Samsung wants batteries that last too long.
