qSafe: Power Cell of the Future
Recently, dangerous explosions in lithium-ion batteries have put many lives at risk and caused several major product recalls affecting cell phones, airplanes, hoverboards, and laptops. Researchers and technology companies worldwide have developed solutions that are often impractical and fail to address the root causes of the explosions. Our qSafe power cell uses a system of surface acoustic waves that prevent hazardous lithium buildups, which cause short circuits and explosions in lithium-ion batteries. Furthermore, advances in chemistry will allow the qSafe power cell to perform with increased efficiency through the application of quantum nano-based materials. The use of these materials also solves ethical issues created by unsafe conditions in mining cobalt, which is utilized in current lithium-ion battery technology. The qSafe power cell will be a quantum leap into safe, efficient, and ethical battery technology.
