The researchers say that the bendable battery is designed based on the structure of the body's spinal curvature and can greatly prolong its life. But the battery is currently only about 85% of the capacity of the ordinary battery, but it is believed that they will try to improve the problem.
In general, the battery consists of hard components that store charge and the softer cushioning parts around them. Like the spine, they have a certain degree of softness to achieve the flexural properties. According to the research director, Dr. Yuan Yang, no matter what direction you bend, the battery can provide stable voltage and high energy storage density.
According to South Korea's ETNews website, Samsung will develop foldable displays in March, start the production panel in September, and then start the production of mobile phones in November. So it is presumed that the foldable cell phone using this kind of battery is likely to be listed at the beginning of 2019.
