    I hope some of the these new technologies start to make it in to modern smartphone batteries soon - it doesn't seem like li-ion batteries have changed much for years. It would be nice not to need to charge my phone every day!

    Just imagine if we were still on NiMH or NiCAD :eek:.

    Batteries that drive cars is where we really need this improvement. It would be great if a car could run 200-300 miles on one charge instead of the paltry distance we get at present. I suppose we also need a really fast charging system too as the present system is just too slow. Interchangeable batteries on cars is surely the only answer.

    Yea I totally agree. The perfect battery would travel 300 miles, charge in 15 mins, and never explode or catch fire :eek:
    Is that too much to ask :confused:
