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

@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.

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: Doing away with a charger altogether would be a real game changer.

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.

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. Parts Search
