Dyson Comes Out of Washroom:Plans Smartphone Swoop

Principla James Dyson, pictured, is pumping $15 million into solid-state battery maker Sakti3, whose smartphone battery technology is claimed to store twice as much energy as traditional lithium batteries.

Satki3’s solid-state technology switches out reactive liquid compounds for solid lithium electrodes, storing a claimed 1000 watt hours per cubic litre, compared to the 620 cubic litres stored by lithium-ion batteries.

With its investment in the Michigan-based firm, Dyson said it aims to double battery life for smartphones, and potentially create electric cars that can handle 900-1000 kilometres on a single charge.
