surely by that time its just keeping up with increased power draw from more powerful devices, so the increased longevity will be offset by higher draw... altho small manufacturing processes on the whole might be reducing power consumption.... i dunno!
we need a boffin to step in here. Nexxo i choose you!
Depends on the device though, the more recent trend (ignoring GFX cards) has been to cut down power consumption.
ahh but even graphics cards are starting to use less power but give more grunt (ati radeon 57/5800 series)
No one told them that the world will end in 2012?
I wish it were 2013 already. I don't think I can take another 3 years of "end of the world" related jokes/comments.
Oh don't worry, it'll all be over soon enough.
(did you get it?)
So... how long till they start exploding?
so in 3 years they dont expect there to be a new and better technology?
I bet there is some kind of drawback, long charge time, fire hazard or that they loose capacity after some charge cycles
Or maybe they just cause the end of the world
Pretty sure we have done by ourselves, so proud... not
so, are these supposed to be better than A-123 cells? (Lithium phosphate)
Surely, with the end of the world being nigh, we could just revert to a cheap failsafe - hamsters in running wheels!
I bet in 2013 most things will be 30% more efficient thus negating any Li-ion advancements ahah
No. I don't care about days without charging as I can always plug it in over night. What I want to see is a ten hour life under intensive use (eight hours work, plus a one hour commute each way).
