    As per the report, Google X Research Labs is said to be concentrating on several new battery technologies as of now. The group working on the battery technologies is just a small one consisting of four members.

    In an interview, Dr. Bhardwaj has told that Google has at least 20 battery-dependent projects in their line-up and other like industries transportation, health care, robotics and communications, designing physical devices where Google is working, requires efficient batteries.

    According to the report the search engine giant is said to be working on a solid-state battery in the form of thin-film. Solid-state, thin-film batteries offer better battery life and are thinner and lighter than our existing batteries which transmit a current across a solid, rather than liquid.

    For this project, Google joined hands with many tech-companies like Apple, Tesla Motors Inc. and International Business Machines Corp to work on the battery efficiency.

    Moreover, the team led by Dr. Bharadhwaj is also working on current lithium-ion battery to advance its technology.

    Also, they could be used in smartphones and other mobile devices that are thinner, bendable, wearable and even implantable in the human body.

    As a fact, traditional batteries have the capability to freeze at high temperatures, so Google X engineers are coating them in blends of wax and graphite in a way that makes the heat diffuse more evenly.
