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.
