Update On Battery Advancement... Not Much New To Report
from the bottlenecks... dept
Power is increasingly an issue for all these mobile devices you're expected to own these days, and every once in a while we see yet another story about advancements in battery technology. The latest story? There's basically nothing new to report at all. Everyone's looking, but the advancements remain incremental. Meanwhile, other types of advancements that promised to help haven't done very much either. Fuel cells have yet to prove anything, and for various reasons may never get as far as fuel cell believers predict. In the meantime, it seems like looking at other issues, such as decreased power consumption and faster charges may be more fruitful short-term pursuits. However, if this proliferation of gadgetry continues, there needs to be some kind of real breakthrough.
