Battery performance is directly related to temperature. As your battery continues to supply energy it heats up. Once the battery reaches a critical temperature then it is shutdown to cool.
In 2030: “Do you guys remember when you had to ‘charge’ your phone?”
- Faster charging: As you know, whenever you charge your phone it heats up. The temperature is the bottle neck. Allowing the battery to operate at higher temperatures reduces your wait time to charge your phone or car.
- Increased efficiency: If a technology existed to allow batteries to operate at higher temperatures then the batteries could supply more energy and for a longer time.
