Silicon Valley guru believes rechargeable alkaline batteries could be safer and cheaper to manufacture.
After the exploding batteries fiasco of the Galaxy Note 7 last year, the world had seen the dangers of the popular Lithium-ion batteries. A small imperfection could lead to catastrophic results due to the volatile ingredients of the Li-ion batteries. Therefore, researchers took to the drawing board to find a safer as well as cheaper alternative power source and they ended up in a technology from the early 2000’s — alkaline batteries.
