Surely you've had a battery die on you when you least expect it. Out with friends or at work with no good way to charge it. Even if you have multiples or a charging cable they can take hours to refill. Beyond that, when mishandled or overworked, they can be dangerously unstable.
Industry giant Innokin apparently has some revolutionary ideas in battery tech. Although they haven't made a formal press release yet, a leaked document obtained by Vaping360
originated from Mountain Oak Vapors chief operating officer Dimitris Agrafiotis reads as follows:
Our world runs on power. Technology innovation is the proof of evolution that changes how we do everything. From the beginning, Innokin Technology has been a leader in developing various vaporizer technology for tobacco harm reduction. After years of research, it has made a breakthrough that will truly reshape the vaping industry. This technological advancement will not only be for vaping, but it can be used in many other applications across other industries that utilize rechargeable batteries.
Innokin’s battery technology will change the way we all vape. It is proven to be faster, longer-lasting and above all, safer. This is the Innokin Energy System. A power solution that will not only improve the core of vaping, but contribute to sustainable energy solutions.
By pushing the boundaries of current rechargeable battery standards, it is capable of charging at a rate that is one hundred times faster than existing batteries. The battery is able to handle a high volume of power transfers because it has a uniquely built cell structure that is equivalent to the lifespan of one hundred traditional cells. This technology utilizes advanced chemistry within the cells, making them safer to use in sustained high-power applications.
Sustainable energy is the heart of our new world. Innokin’s energy technology will help create a safer smoke-free future for vaping and more."
"Agrafiotis has had a long relationship with Innokin, first as a YouTube reviewer, and later as the organizer and Chairman of SEVIA USA, the advocacy group formed by the most powerful Chinese vape manufacturers."
Consider the impact of battery technology that charges 100 times faster and is safer for high output use. This could spread far outside the vaping world and impact our cellphones, computers & tablets or even electric cars!
The rumors of Innokin's breakthrough comes on the heels of Stanford university's announcement of Fire-Proof cells and another from Professor John Goodenough (co-inventor of the Lithium Ion battery) involving Solid-state cells, the future of the battery looks bright.
