Becky submitted a new article:

New battery technology could mean far higher charge capacity - The new research from Norway could yield impressive results for mobile devices and electric cars

Mobile technology has progressed at an impressive rate over the past 10-15 years, but there is one component that doesn't seem to have improved at the same rate; battery technology. Mobile devices are thinner and faster than ever, but batteries have been unable to keep pace. Gone are the days where the latest mobile phone could last for around a week between charges; nowadays you would be lucky if your device lasts for longer than a day.

This is great for capacity, but what about the fact that Li-On batteries explode? Stanford students have developed an aluminum battery that doesn't explode.

Maybe they can merge these two techs to make the perfect battery.
