Many current smart devices are let down by their battery life. This is caused by the relatively low energy capacity available with the current battery technology. When the device does need to be charged it can take anywhere from 1.5-2.5 hours and the battery will eventually stop functioning after only 1000 charges, or 1-3 years.
To combat these limitations Capacitoxx is a peptide nanotube-based super-capacitor that combines with a rechargeable battery to create a hybrid-cell to be used with smart devices. This allows for rapid charging times, giving a smart device a full charge in less than a second, and a projected lifespan of over 10 years. Energy density is also significantly increased to allow users to operate smart devices for over a week on a single charge. This reduces battery wastage, pollution, and purchasing cost found with existing solutions.
