    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.

    I wish it were 2013 already. I don't think I can take another 3 years of "end of the world" related jokes/comments.

    I bet there is some kind of drawback, long charge time, fire hazard or that they loose capacity after some charge cycles

    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).
