Battery backup will go up in the future: Good news for smartphone owners

This is a common rule that relative costs come down with advancements in technology. E.g. The HTC One V released in 2012 was a mid ranged phone with 512 megabytes of RAM but now, we get twice the ram and a jelly bean update for half the price of the phone, and this happened in 2013, only a year after the release of the phone. Same is with battery backup. Batteries have really come a long way, and they would still have to go a long way, and find compatible grounds with processor technologies and give better results. For a more powerful processor, the power usage should be intelligent enough to run the battery for quite some time without having to compromise on its resources.

Until there are technology advancements in battery life extension, the smart way is to carry a portable battery charger which weighs less that a pound and cost less than 50USD if shipped directly from China. This way i can charge my smartphone for 6-8 times which means that i am not worried about lot of things.

There's some really cool and interesting tech on the horizon with the batter industry. One that i am particularly interested in is charging over WiFi: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2506411/The-end-charger-Wi-Fi-powered-phones-make-plug-powering-obsolete.html. Doing away with a charger altogether would be a real game changer.

@Hailey - Great point. It is a real nusiance to fimd mulitple places to plug in all of the battery powered devices we have  - and not just phones and tablets. Tools, home telephone handsets, battery powered toothbrushes, and on the list proliferates. If the industry could standardize on a wireless recharging ssytem that could work for all of these devices, that would be a step forward.
