There are two truths to modern electronics. They need a steady supply of electrical energy to operate. And users expect them to be mobile and convenient.
Together, that means an unrelenting demand for power-dense batteries.
Research and development into new technologies for energy storage continues, ranging from sulfur batteries to magnetic technologies, which will power everything from electric vehicles to phones to spacecraft and more. This has required new ideas about battery manufacture, maintenance and recycling to emerge. And therefore, the very nature about future battery shapes, sizes and formats is evolving as well.
