Recently a patent application from Apple was published by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. This patent reveals the next generation potential battery designs.

We have seen that most of the mobile devices are now turning towards slimmer devices. The Apple’s latest invention relates to a battery cell, which also includes a set of electrode sheets of different dimension that can be arranged in a variety of designs.

This new configuration of the batteries can also be based on a non-rectangular battery design like L-shaped, triangular or even pyramidal. As almost all the Existing battery packs typically contain rectangular cells, so the new models of the cells in Apple will most probably allow them to pack more cells into a smaller battery pack.

There might be another possibility of putting some more chips into some of the space the existing batteries take. However we can say that these new batteries are either going to increase the battery capacity or will allow them to create a thinner device.
