    In a world premiere, French start-up Lancey has launched the first electric heater with a storage battery. The far infrared heater can stock electricity in the battery during off-peak hours for use during peak hours, usually between 6 and 8 pm. The system has a self-monitoring feature, and the user can even control...

    French start-up Sunbirds has designed a solar drone that can fly nonstop for 8 hours. At 3 kg and with a 3-meter wingspan, the SB4 Phoenix relies on 100% non-polluting electric energy. The drone can recharge its batteries in flight thanks to 40 solar cells on the wings. This enables it to greatly exceed the flight...

    The drone revolution can take off only if improved battery technology allows UAVs to stay aloft longer.   While drones are getting smaller, faster and sturdier, one aspect has seen little recent improvement: batteries. Most quadcopters can fly only 20-30 minutes on a charge, and even less with heavier payloads or on...

    Everything has become smart: phones, tablets, GPS. Until today, batteries were missing from this list because of their lack of service life and false charging indications. But a team from NTU, Nanyang Technological University of Singapore, designed a smart chip for chargers that will optimize the charging process by...

    Portable and rechargeable anywhere, the eco USBCELL is a battery with a plus: its eco-friendly concept. While more than 15 billion alkaline batteries are thrown away every year, the USBCELL can be re-used and re-charged hundreds of times simply by plugging it into a standard USB port. This eliminates the need for...
