Battery as one of the important part of Laptop, it brings mobile office work extensive attention form its birth.Along with the rapid development of laptops and palm electronic products, folks come up with higher requirement for the stability, working life, volume, charge times, and charge hours of the battery. However, the battery technology also makes improvement in many aspects to follow the market demanding.
In order to reduce the volume and achieve many purposes, such as prolong the working life, increase the using times, and reduce the negative affect caused by the memory effect, considering about the battery cost and using security, the battery is become more and more specific in terms of material sorting. Let's take the anode material of Li-ion battery as an example, currently it can be divide into lithium cobalt oxide, lithium nickel oxide, lithium manganese oxide and other raw materials. From the respective of technology, lithium cobalt oxide is play leading role for the current battery. In order to further improve the product energy store capacity, the LiNion materials with higher technical content is hopeful to enter the market, but as anode material have limit impact for the battery characters, it is estimated by the expert that the volume energy density of Li-ion battery is about 400wh/l, meanwhile, the single piece battery minimum thickness should between 4-5mm, it has no much development space on the performance.
Overall speaking, the development of new generation battery which replaces the Li-ion battery is very urgent, and the Professional battery manufactures are also actively engaged in material sorting and development working. While in the new materials which hopeful to replace the lithium cobalt oxide, metal lithium rechargeable battery got focus attention. Metal lithium rechargeable battery belongs to cathode material which use the lithium directly, the most biggest feature is fully exert the battery reaction of cathode metal materials to enable the new pattern battery energy storing capacity reach to double of traditional Li-ion battery, and in discharge aspect, it can even reach to 10 times of the traditional products. Lenovo Laptop Company is pay attention to the development of laptop exclusive high efficiency battery all along, putting a lot of money to research independently, at the same time, maintaining close contacts with major battery manufacturers to try to supply high efficiency, economic updated battery technology to China users.
Zinc-air battery is also a leader in the new materials to replace the lithium cobalt oxide, and its use zinc for the cathode with extreme characters, At present, Zinc-air battery is still with problem in free charging aspect, but majority battery manufacturers are actively seeking the solutions, i believe that mature zinc battery product will be available soon. It will be seen from this that in the near future, no matter the laptop manufacturers or users will face more and more high efficiency and practical choices, and the birth of many laptops which adopt new technology and new materials will have a revolutionary impact to the battery market.
