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.
