Stanford University has developed battery prototypes with a fire extinguisher to protect the user from explosive failure. Generally, engineers and chemists investigating the creation of new batteries for mobile devices are looking for longer life and higher loading speeds but it seems that the events of 2016 have made them look at other details that a battery can explode and damage to user.

Batteries with extinguisher

Stanford University has paid special attention to the latter and has patented a design of battery in the vernacular, incorporates a fire extinguisher. In addition to the usual materials these batteries have a retarder that is released only by exceeding temperatures above 160 degrees. The component would separate the parts of the battery so that it would not necessarily be damaged in case the chemical was accidentally released.

The objective in any case is that the fire extinguisher is released in less than half a second to avoid an explosion when the temperature raises a lot. Despite the fact that the cases of explosions and damaged batteries are minimal apart from important failures such as Note 7 these components are unstable and explosive in nature since they charge a lot of energy in increasingly smaller spaces.

Huawei and Samsun g are the queens of mobile phones globally, as Android is concerned. They make very cheap phones with good features. Perhaps this is why it should not surprise that the middle range of phones is the most sold with these two companies at the head. According to the consultancy Kantar World panel Huawei was crowned the top spot in November 2016 with 18.9% of the total market share, leaving Samsung one tenth behind, with 18.8%.
