WSJ: Google has a small research team working on future battery technology

by John_A


According to a report published by The Wall Street Journal earlier today, Google has a group of researchers working on future battery technology for use in its upcoming devices. The team of four reportedly got together in late 2012, with former Apple battery expert Dr. Ramesh Bhardwaj at the helm.

The publication states that the team “first started testing batteries developed by other companies for use in Google devices, but about a year later expanded to plan battery technologies that Google might develop.”

Now it seems that the team are “trying to advance current lithium-ion technology and the cutting-edge solid-state batteries for consumer devices, such as Glass and Google’s glucose-measuring contact lens.”

It comes as no surprise that Google is working hard to try and make a breakthrough with future battery technology. After all, its the Nexus range of smartphones and tablets that’s often slated in the media for having very poor battery life.
