As spotted by Electrek, Tesla seems to have filed a patent that hints at a new longer-lasting battery with better performance and cheaper costs. The patent can be found at Wipo’s patentscope if you are curious about all the technical details. In either case, let us talk about what’s worth noting here.The patent lists Jeffery Dahn (Tesla’s battery research partner) and his team as the inventors. For the specifics, the […]
A Virgin Atlantic flight from New York to London had to make an emergency landing in Boston after a passenger’s faulty external battery caused a fire. The flight had to be landed in Boston because of this. The crew did extinguish the fire which was suspected to have been caused by the faulty battery charger on the A330 Airbus jet.
Battery Saver mode is available on all devices running Android 5.0 and beyond. If your device is running on an older version – and therefore doesn’t come with the particular feature – we also have helpful battery tips that you could follow.
It looks like the scientists over at the University of Pennsylvania Electrochemical Engine Center have managed to come up with something interesting – a self-heating lithium ion battery which will be able to improve on cold weather performance in a rather dramatic manner. Just how is this achieved? Well, it makes use of a thin foil that is made of nickel in the first place, where this thin foil will […]
Sony has long been a major player in battery technology, you might remember that it was the first to release a commercially feasible Li-ion battery more than two decades ago. The company appears to have faded in the background in this particular arena over the past few years but if new reports to be believed then in the next few years it’s going to make a big comeback. Apparently the […]
With so many mobile devices being used by the masses these days, it would make plenty of sense to ensure that battery technology is well developed in such a way for these mobile devices to last the distance throughout the entire day’s use. Well, it looks like a true blue battery breakthrough is hard to come by, as what we seem to experience would be slow but sure extensions in […]
Your phone is your most important asset when you are outside, but only if it is powered On. You never know when you may get a deadline of 30 minutes before going outside for the best night ever, and your phone displays “Low Battery”. Fortunately, and with a little knowledge, you can charge your phone in an optimum way, and get as much juice as possible before heading out.Below is […]
Energizer has come up with something that is certainly a sight to behold – that is, a 2-tonne replica of the world famous Tower Bridge over in London. Of course, the folks over at Energizer have eschewed the “traditional” method of doing things, and that would mean ditching brick and mortar, but rather, they have made use of 83,000 batteries. These are not new batteries, of course, but rather, used […]
Earlier today, we did hear about how the folks over at LG are working on a new kind of hexagonal battery technology for smartwatches, and this time around, we have received word that Samsung, too, are interested in churning out new batteries for mobile devices. The whole point of these new batteries would be to deliver a far more improved battery life – so much so that Samsung has ambitiously […]
If there is one particular issue that modern day mobile devices have to grapple with, it would be that of battery life – there is simply way too many functions that eat into a device’s battery life too soon. Remember the good old days where old school Nokias like the Nokia 3310 was able to last for four, or even five days of regular use? Well, smartwatches might be the […]
Smartphones turn out to be pretty lethal when it comes to battery explosions. There have been many cases in the past where battery explosion has caused severe repercussions for the users involved in the incident. Although, not much can be done to avoid such accidents, but a battery that would at least give a subtle warning to users before bordering near to an explosion, could prove to be helpful in […]
With very slow (but somewhat steady) battery capacity growth in an ever-connected world, it is clear that users are more battery-life conscious than ever before. The next best thing to “more battery capacity” is “faster charging” – ideally you would want both.To that end, several technologies have been created to charge electronic devices faster, and Qualcomm’s quick charge is one of them. Yet, with a multitude of phone makers, accessories […]
When you put up Tesla against some of the most iconic car manufacturers on the planet, the Elon Musk outfit seems like the new kid on the block. Nevertheless, the company has worked hard for the advancement of electric vehicles and it has even got traditional manufacturers to follow suit. Tesla recently revealed its ambitious plans of offering home batteries and while it seems in a good position to do something like […]
We are so used to different kinds of batteries, ranging from AA to AAAs as well as the cell type batteries that watches and calculators used, not to mention our smartphone batteries that tend to be flat and rectangle in nature. Having said that, most of these are far from being paper thin, but the holographic microbattery that you see here is very different – since it measures a mere […]
Dyson, the famous British vacuum company, has shared that they have invested a cool $15 million (£10.14 million) into a spanking new kind of smartphone battery that is touted to be able to last at least double the amount of time which standard batteries are able to last before requiring a trip to the nearest power outlet. This particular technology is said to be developed by the battery-tech start-up known […]
Samsung knows that in this day and age, as the modern road warrior, you would need to ensure that you have your fair share of chargers carried around – after all, you can never quite tell just when a day might require you to plow through your smartphone’s battery faster than usual? Well, enter the Samsung Animal Edition Battery Packs that will feature illustrations of a quartet of species of […]
Mirror, mirror on the wall, which of my devices are in need of some power?

I suppose it is just a matter of time before someone would come up with the idea of actually riding the wearable technology wave, and to work on a battery that will be able to recharge itself – through the use of kinetic energy, of course. Hence, here we are with what they call “Ampy”, where Ampy happens to be a spare battery pack that will certainly come in handy […]
