New battery tech can keep your smartphone charged for five continuous days

Researchers have developed a new solution that is capable of powering smartphones for five continuous days or electric cars to run over 1,000 km without needing to refuel.

The new battery solution does away with the traditional lithium-ion combination in modern batteries that power devices such as smartwatches, smartphones, and even pacemakers. Instead, researchers used lithium-sulfur batteries to achieve ultra-high capacity.

Lithium Australia looks to boost crop fertilisers via recycled batteries

Lithium Australia has confirmed that it is currently assessing the use of zinc and manganese, obtained from recycled alkaline batteries, as micro-nutrient supplements in fertilisers.

If its research is successful, the company says it could potentially create a new market for such materials in Australia and tap into an overlooked resource in the form of spent batteries.

According to Lithium Australia’s managing director Adrian Griffin, the current state of battery recycling has become a “major problem” with as many as 97% of batteries being disposed of in municipal waste streams and dumped in landfills, “a sad indictment of our society’s environmental management practices”, Mr Griffin said.
