“Battery life in future iPhones and MacBook Pros could be improved with Apple’s concept for a new, redesigned battery containing multiple ‘jelly rolls’ enclosed in a single pouch,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider.
“Jelly rolls, also known as Swiss rolls, are found in cylindrical, rechargeable batteries, like a typical AA, AAA or D batteries,” Hughes reports. “In the design, anode and cathode material is laid down and divided by a separator, and then rolled up into a hollow cylinder.”
Hughes reports, “Apple is now looking to expand on the jelly roll design, according to a new patent application discovered this week by AppleInsider. The filing, dubbed ‘Battery with Multiple Jelly Rolls in a Single Pouch,’ aims to improve the existing lithium batteries found in most electronic devices, including the iPhone, iPad and portable Macs.”
