This Ph.D. student set out to achieve the seemingly impossible and recently created a mobile phone battery that recharges within minutes.
A few years ago, we could not even imagine the existence of many technological creations currently in use. Surely the people who envision and construct these hi-tech gadgets are geniuses.
Let’s introduce a similar talent, Kamran Amin, who is doing the rounds on the internet because of his fantastic creation.
Kamran is a Ph.D. student at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology in Beijing, China. Independent Urdu reports that the primary focus of Kamran’s research is energy storage materials and devices, mainly lithium-ion batteries.
Pertinent to this, Kamran concentrates on developing new materials that store and save energy efficiently. This Ph.D. student set out to achieve the seemingly impossible and recently created a mobile phone battery that recharges within minutes.
Concerning his creation, Kamran said:
Nobody in the lab has developed a material that can store energy other than me. I have made a battery that can charge up to 70% in 2 minutes, given that the battery is created as per the principles.
Kamran went on to describe that 100 percent charging of the battery is unreachable within two minutes; however, 70 percent charging alone is a very encouraging output.
Furthermore, Kamran Amin explained that usually, it is seen that the capacity of the battery decreases with time; however, his battery will continue to live up to its full potential for straight eight years if it’s charged once in 24 hours.
Following the creation, Kamran’s project thesis was published in the Journal of the Royal Society of Chemistry, and he got awarded the Outstanding Student Award twice at his University.
Kamran Amin commented on the initiative of such projects in Pakistan by stating:
So far, there is no research lab in our country regarding secondary energy storage devices – we only have trained people. Even if there are some Pakistanis trained in this field, they start to work abroad. For such initiatives to stem in Pakistan, the government should launch a policy on electric vehicles.
This way, the demand for solar panels will increase. It is imperative to do so, as mobile electronics’ trend is on the rise, which requires batteries. Importing these batteries is expensive, so laboratories must be set up in the country, and people must be trained to work on similar projects.
