Korean scientists create flexible batteries

Flexible displays have been the craze lately but devices employing such screens also need power sources that can be bent. Right now such power sources are nowhere to be found but a team of Korean scientists is here to help.

Indeed, the scientists, led by professor Keon Jae Lee at the Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, have created a solid-state flexible battery that retains its energy even when folded, spindled and mutilated. The battery could mean future e-readers and tablets could be paper thin and partially foldable, ushering in interesting new device designs.

The technology works by printing the rechargeable lithium-ion batteries on thin film. Applying battery material to rollable displays has been a big problem for the gadget manufacturers thus far but this breakthrough could change the way we think about surfaces, screens, and case materials.

Commercial adoption of the new technology is expected to occur in the next few years.
