hey i got a question...in around how many years will these batteries make any commercial appearance?? 5? 10? more?
and you know what would be really cool?
if the same size battery gives 10X boost, a battery ten times SMALLER would give the same battery life as todays batteries!
imagine how light phones will become.
just remove the battery from ur phone and see how light it is.
I agree with Brendan. I've seen so many new technologies surface, new medical advances, and new this new that... most of it never make it beyond a magazine article. The thing they don't tell you a lot of the time is what could go wrong... Have you ever read an article why something didn't make production? They only print the good stuff but never the bad. There are so many reason this won't work. Low recharge cycles, production costs, safety, and many others this article does not address.
I kind of disagree about manufacture greed though because if something like this does work correctly, wouldn't you want to be the first one of sell it? Who ever sells it will probably make enough money for life. No need to worry about needing to sell quantity. Just the amount of new gadgets coming out will keep manufactures needing to get new batteries all the time.
i believe that would be ten times lasting longer. and that would be so cool :-)
its about time we had a battery that will last a while longer, my htc battery dies after a day now and no shop sells a spare
Nothing interesting, because "Biovoltaic" batteries will last more than 10 years (it said, that 30 years)... So one month or 30 years? What do you think? :D
So for the same size you can last 10x longer
You can pump out 10x the power for the same size.
You can pump out the same power for 10th the size.
yep i agree this would be really useful as an electric powered car battery as well as a mobile phone battery.
i think its useful and i got more details from net also...it ads power rather it makes the stuff more portable..........
i think u should visit.the link.....if u want more details..
Does this mean the new battery can last up to 10x more than the current Li-Ion battery?
According to the article, this new process for manufacture only requires an extra 1 or 2 steps. With an existing production method this shouldn't cost much more so the only bottlenecks will be competition. If only one company buys the rights to the patent, they can charge whatever they like and they'll get it.
this sounds great.. but if it'll happen, i think they will sell it for a really high price. more like an optional battery upgrade...
Hey guys, much as I love mobile phones etc. the biggest application for this technology is for electric powered cars with huge power consumption not your piddly little mobile.
of course it will be developed! if nothing else, the phone manufactrers will completely bypass the battery manufacturers in the highly unlikely event they become obstinate. the idea that this will make the phone market stagnate is ludicrous. people will still want something new and different, and as long as the manufacturers are making new phones with new gimmicks, we will be seduced by them on a regular basis. if it was just about lastability, i woudl be wearing many of the same clothes i had 10 years ago.
this is an excellent development for everyone
before anyone says "but the battery prices will be higher so that'll make up for sales". It wont, it'll just make it harder for working class citizens to buy them...once again reducing sales. but i suppose higher power batteries could be optional... hmmmm, im starting to debate with myself and im in work so i better stop this..... peace out ppl
i think you all should forget about this, i personally dont think it will happen... who really benefits from this... JUST US!!! Thats who!!! Battery companies will lose out, because replacement battery sales will drop... Battery companies all have contracts with mobile companies, can you imagine them dropping production, and sales for our benfit....HAHAHAHAHA Just remember people that companies exist to make money, not to benefit us, us benefiting from anything we buy just happens to be a factor of a company making money by producing products... I think this will be kept very hush hush from now on and we wont hear any more about it... so dont get your hopes up people, and dont have so much faith in humanity,,, Its flawed
It just makes you think; what if there is a battery that never had to be charged? A true everlast.
