Google solid-state battery from company’s X Lab will change everything
Another great work is under progress at Google X Lab. Reports suggest that the search and hardware giant is reportedly working on a Lithium-Ion Battery.
Now the search giant that has been trying to make it big in the hardware business too is looking forward to come out with a long-lasting solid-state battery that will help the company rule battery market across the world.
The project is at advanced level and it is being led by none other than the search giantâ€™s Dr. Ramesh Bhardwaj, an old hand from the company. Bhardwajâ€™s project aims to improve today’s lithium-ion batteries and make solid-state ones. Top tech blog SlashGear says that the companyâ€™s battery would be a revolutionary piece of technology if they would be able to achieve it, much like the introduction of solid-state drives which wowed PC enthusiasts with its significantly improved speed and durability over the old mechanical hard drives.
It was some three years ago when Ramesh Bhardwaj actually started testing batteries from other companies for Google’s projects in 2012. Later when they were well aware of the inns and outs of the battery business the team began to think over a battery that would change the whole battery scenario.
While talking about the development Foundation 8 Hardware Strategy Head Lior Susan said that Google’s plan to expand into the battery business is common sense as their projects really require better batteries such as its car and drones. The search giant is not the only one trying to make a giant leap in the battery business. Apple, IBM and Tesla Motors have all worked on it and many others are still working on many projects.
