Flexible Battery Made In Korea

Professor Keon Jae Lee of the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology and his team have created a battery so thin and flexible that it could one day lead to gadgets with big screens that can be folded away into your pocket.

Lee was able to create a lithium-ion battery that is not only razor-thin but is able to retain its voltage even while being bent.

Lee is now looking into mass-production techniques and the possibility of stacking the batteries for greater power output. Bigger questions about the practicability and durability of flexible gadgets still remain, however it is nonetheless good to know the main technical roadblocks are solvable.

What could be the impact of such flexibility on stationary storage applications?
