Created by Stanford University researchers, this new technology is aimed at preventing battery overheating and helping to make personal electronic devices safer. The technology would be incorporated into Lithium Ion batteries and would work by keeping an eye on the temperature. As soon as a temperature of 160-degrees Fahrenheit is detected, the battery would cease operations and not turn back on until a cool temperature is detected.

Aimed to revolutionize the smartphone, laptop and tablet market, the battery overheating prevention technology could help to decrease the number of instances of device overheating. Best of all, the technology could be implemented with existing batteries, which could help to accelerate the rate at which the technology is used with consumer products.
