New Lithium Battery Promises 8X Longer Life
The Energizer Bunny might keep going and going and going, but mobile pc users have been waiting and waiting and waiting for an advance in battery technology that will yield a jump in battery life. If researchers at South Korea’s Hanyang University have their say, we might just see that. They different approach involves silicon instead of graphite in making lithium batteries. That core change is supposed to yield 800% more storage capacity. Don’t look for this right away, but keep your fingers crossed that we begin to hear more about this soon. It would be nice (and about time) to see a breakthrough here.
