Jardo Stammeshaus (VU): The Liion Power Battery Life Extender
Lithium-ion batteries are playing a crucial role in the transition to sustainable energy. You can find them inside all of your portable electronics, for example in your smartphone, but also in your E-Bike. Unfortunately, these batteries degrade and lose capacity faster than necessary, because regular chargers are not focused on maximizing the lifetime of batteries.
Liion Power is working on a sustainable solution for this problem; a universal Battery Life Extender. The device is simply implemented in between your adapter and battery, and keeps the battery healthy by charging it in a smarter way.
If everyone decides to use this Battery Life Extender to charge their batteries in a more sustainable way, together we can change the focus of the entire battery industry from a linear mindset to a sustainable mindset.
