Building Better Batteries: Free of Charge
I'll be discussing the future of batteries and what it means for the electric vehicle revolution, the environment, and (importantly) your phone; answering questions such as: - The batteries on spacecraft last for YEARS, so why won't my phone last longer than a day? - Will my new smartphone catch on fire? - What is the secret sauce to Tesla's batteries? - How are diamond batteries a thing and when can I have an electro-bedazzled phone? - Seriously, can I please charge my phone faster?
