Is your battery half full or half empty?

Dear Sir or Madam,

Have you experienced that too? You would like to announce that you are late for an appointment, but the battery of your mobile phone is empty. You want to quickly pick up a few crumbs in the morning with the hand vacuum cleaner, but it is not loaded. Annoying situations - but also completely harmless. It looks different when medical devices are affected. For patients it is important that this technique always works. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces are currently working on battery cells with increased energy density and a long service life. These will initially be tested on electric vehicles and wind turbines. But research knows no boundaries and so the findings could also enrich medical technology. Find out more in this news.

Have a good start into the week,

Simone Ernst
