Background The Silicon-Air Battery is created from oxygen and silicon. These batteries are lightweight have thousands of hours of life have a high tolerance for both humid and tremendously dry weather The Silicon-Air Battery performs all tasks that all other batteries can accomplish, but with more energy efficiency.
Environment created by Oxygen and Silicon Luckily, Silicon is the second most plentiful element in the earth’s crust. The Silicon-Air battery’s advanced features of long lasting power and ingredients allow society to be more environmental friendly Why to be concerned about the Environment?
Technology Uses Convenience to consumers (Size) As the battery upgrades to a more powerful source of energy, there are many new and efficient uses for it. Ex: Hearing Aids that last longer TypeCapacitySize (mm) AAA1.25 V 10.5 × 44.5 AA1.2 V 14.5 × 50.5 C3,800 mAh 26.2 × 50 D1.25 V 34.2 × 61.5 Silicon-Air Battery1 -2 V0.3 (millamperes/square cm)
Future Technology upgrading this new battery = energy use that will become far more efficient in a way that it will be more powerful and will be able to perform more advanced technological services for society. Ex: Electric Cars The use of electric cars will become more efficient: gasoline fueled cars because gasoline resources are becoming scarce daily the resources for the Silicon-Air Battery remain plentiful and easy to recycle
Significance The Silicon-Air battery supports a clean and healthy environment use of technology to be more efficient and advanced due to its long lasting battery life. this battery may upgrade to a high powered energy source that positively contributes to future technology This new technology provides a new source of energy that our society needs and will utilize to its full extent. Energy for the Future?
