Google’s Team Working On Projects To Develop Better Batteries

Google Inc., the search engine giant, has now joined the battery arm race to expand its power in the electronics and hardware field.

Dr. Ramesh Bhardwaj, the former Apple Inc. battery expert, started leading a team in late 2012 to start testing batteries developed by others in order to use them in Google devices. According to the people related to this matter, almost a year later, the team led by Dr. Ramesh Bhardwaj started looking at battery technologies that Google can develop by itself.

In the recent few years, Google has moved into several industries such as health care, transportation, designing physical device, robotics and communication and these all require enough batteries. In 2013, chief executive Larry Page said to the analysts that battery life is a big issue for the mobile devices, he also said to the analysts to invent better experiences.

Dr. Ramesh Bhardwaj told the industry executives that there are around 20 battery dependant projects in Google. Google’s self driving car that runs on batteries is recharged by electricity. Google glass also suffered a lot because of short battery life. Lion Susan, the head of the hardware strategy at venture-capital firm Formation 8, said that Google wants to direct most of their destiny in several places along with hardware supply chain.

Google has joined many companies that are trying to improve the batteries including Tesla Motors, Apple Inc. and International Business Machines Corp.

The group of Dr. Ramesh Bhardwaj at Google is trying to move ahead with the current lithium-ion technology and they are also trying to advance the cutting edge solid-state batteries for devices such as Google’s glucose measuring contact lens and Glass.
