Smart charger device to increase smartphones’ battery lifetime, prevent fire accidents, and provide cross-brand flexibility

Project description

New device to extend your phone’s battery life

Most consumers would opt for longer-life batteries than improved screens or cameras when purchasing a smartphone. Battery life has become a crucial selling point. The problem with currently-used Lithium-based batteries is that they need frequent recharging and the battery temperature may increase risk of fire or explosion. The EU-funded Optium project proposes an innovative device to ameliorate charging, prolong battery life and eliminate the risks. In addition, the device is compatible with all smartphones. The project will conduct research targeting a wide range of users, entrepreneurs and enterprises aiming to commercialise the device.
