With the involvement in 5G and smartphones productions, Nokia is also struggling to put its R&D into good use. The company has developed a battery based on lithium nanotubes which have 2.5 times higher capacity than a conventional lithium-ion battery of the same size.

Nokia Bell Labs is developing this battery in collaboration with Trinity College Dublin. This technology that iss used in lithium battery is mainly under research for IoT. Internet of Things will be main part of 5G technology.
Nokia to Develop a Battery Contains 2.5 Times More Capacity
A simple battery life reduces very quickly but with the use of this technology can help sustain the working of these IoT devices for longer periods of time. This will only happen if this tech gets proper commercialization after proper QA testing.
The launch date for the battery iss not yet announced because it will most likely go under extensive QA testing to make sure it can survive in the same conditions as lithium-ion batteries can. As conventional batteries havee long been regarded as unsafe for use so it’s good that alternatives coming up to replace them. Amongst alternatives, hydrogen fuel cells and conventional solar panels are notable ones.
