Your weekly incremental battery breakthrough: Sony's olivine-type lithium ion batteries are said to live four times longer than typical li-i fare, and charge to 99% in just 30 minutes. Only for power tools, for now. [SonyInsider via OhGizmo via BBG]
ok, All this talk of Lithium Sulfur Batteries infused in Carbon Nano Structures with 3-4 times todays capacities, then the MIT rapid charging breakthrough...? Am I missing something here? It was reported that all of these technologies made use of existing fabrication methods similar to what we use now... Minus encapsulation and additional processing...
(thankfully this is Gizmodo so the next sentence shouldnt be too much of a shocker)
Why the fuck are we still stuck with shitty battery life!!!!!
I want a laptop that can handle more than an hour and a half of WoW, or a cell phone that goes the whole day without charging, or a damn electric car that recharges in a few minutes.. wtf man
