Chicago, Jan 20, 2017: Lithium batteries can be charged faster in the near future as scientists have got new insights into why adding charged metal atoms to tunnel structures within batteries improve their performance.

Rechargeable lithium batteries have helped power the ‘portable revolution’ in mobile phones, laptops and tablet computers.

“Understanding these processes is important for the future design and development of battery materials and could lead to faster charging batteries that will benefit consumers and industry,” said Saiful Islam, Professor at the University of Bath.

The team from the University of Bath and University of Illinois-Chicago also found a way to develop new generations of lithium batteries for electric vehicles that can store energy from wind and solar power.

Veteran actress Shabana Azmi, who will turn a year older on September 18, says that she wants to get rid of her dependence on the mobile phone.

She is currently in Karjat shooting for “The Moghuls”, a web series for Hotstar produced by Nikkhil Advani.

The Internet is a fascinating web for Shabana Azmi.

“This is the first web series (for Hotstar) that I am doing. The reach of the medium is tremendous. ‘The Moghuls’ is an adaptation of Alex Rutherford’s historical book. It deals with Moghul history all the way from Babur to Aurangzeb,” said Shabana.

What fascinated Shabana Azmi was the space and attention given to the women figures from Moghul history.

She feels women have been treated with scant attention by Moghul historians.

“I mean, everyone knows Mumtaz Mahal because Shah Jahan built the Taj Mahal for her. But what was she really like? I play Babur’s grandmother Esan Daulat. Not much is known about her. But she was the power behind the throne. When Babur was 12, she made sure he was crowned emperor.”

Shabana enjoys the freedom offered by the web. “One can tell a story as elaborately as one wants. Though Esan Daulat is little-known outside the domain of history books my character is done at length. I am shooting for 40 days for ‘The Moghuls’.”

So Shabana would be celebrating her birthday on the sets of “The Moghuls”. Any birthday thoughts?

“Yes, to get rid of my dependence on the mobile phone. My phone has just crashed. And I feel no anxiety about losing my numbers. On the contrary, it is extremely liberating to not have to depend constantly on the phone.

“So yes, this birthday I’d like to return to basic face-to-face conversations with people whom I care for.”

She reveals her husband Javed Akhtar is far more dependent on the mobile phone than she.
