While smartphones, intelligent homes and even intelligent wearables are increasingly sophisticated, energy still limits them. In decades, the battery hasn’t progressed. But we are on the brink of a revolution in authority.
The constraints of lithium-ion batteries are all too well known to big technology and vehicle businesses. While chips and operating systems are becoming more effective to save energy, we only look at one or two days of use on a smartphone before recharging.
While it may be some time before we get a week’s life out of our phones, development is progressing well. We’ve collected all the best battery discoveries that could be with us soon, from over the air charging to super-fast 30-se
