You may think you can charge your mobile phone or tablet in the house, but if you’re lucky enough to live in the South Pacific, you may not have that luxury.
According to a recent study by the University of Queensland, there are actually a lot of batteries that can’t be stored in the home and need to be moved around.
The study looked at the batteries of over 3,500 mobile phones sold in Australia between 2007 and 2016, and compared them to the batteries stored in Australian homes.
In other words, the batteries in the mobile phone can’t charge your laptop, but the batteries for the laptop can.
The researchers found that a significant proportion of the batteries are either too old or are not safe to use in Australia.
“The majority of batteries used in Australian home systems are older than 10 years, which means they’re too old to be used as mobile phones,” said Professor Nick Crozier, lead author of the study.
“The majority have been in use for years and have not been recharged to a high enough standard to be safely used as portable chargers.”
What can you do?
Crozier said the findings have implications for the safety of the battery in your mobile device.
“A number of factors can impact the safe storage of batteries,” he said.
“One of the most important is the size of the container, which can influence the amount of current the battery can safely draw, and the temperature inside the container.”
Another factor is the type of battery, as a large battery is more prone to overcharging, and can be more prone than a small battery to failure.
“What you need to know about batteriesThere are several types of battery used in mobile phones.
There are also types of batteries, which include rechargeable lithium ion, NiMH and Li-ion batteries.
Lithium ion batteries have higher energy density than NiMH batteries, but they are less energy dense than Li-Ion batteries.
The NiMH battery is used in smartphones and tablets, while Li- ion batteries are used in laptops and televisions.
According to the United Nations, there were around 1.3 billion mobile phones in use in the world in 2015.
Around 30 per cent of these phones had batteries older than 20 years, and an additional 30 per per cent had batteries less than 10 and 10 years old.
There are some other factors that affect the safety and reliability of the storage of lithium ion batteries, including storage temperatures and humidity, battery performance and capacity, and battery durability.
While the study was conducted by the Queensland University of Technology, it is not an independent study, and there is no guarantee that all the batteries used were tested in accordance with Australian safety standards.ABC/wiresTopics:energy-and-utilities,environment,energy-environmental-issues,environmental—attractions,environment-management,environmentAL,environmentals-and.environmentalissues,port-macquarie-4280,australia,brisbane-4000,brisbanon-4215,saMore stories from Queensland
