HTC to crank up the battery on One X+, rumors say

by: Bams SadewoSeptember 15, 2012

In the case of the One X+, it is but a slightly improved version of the leader in the One series. Now, we already know most things about the HTC One X+, the details of which have been confirmed by its recent FCC filing. But HTC apparently isn’t quite satisfied yet and is going to make some final tweak to the phone.

Low batt? Try charging from your shirt!

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 8, 2012

Researchers from the University of South Carolina have been able to convert a regular, store-bought shirt into a capacitor, which means that the very clothes we wear could, someday, power the myriad of devices we use in our everyday lives.

While wearable devices are currently iffy at best, we do carry a handful of devices on our person, including our smartphones, personal music players, and to some extent, tablets. Noting that electronics are fast becoming part of our wardrobe, a team led by the USC’s Xiaodong Li and Lihong Bao are experimenting on ways how fabric can act as flexible energy sources for devices.

One day our cotton T-shirts could have more [...]

Flexible batteries can bend and fold, yet their energy remains

by: Andrew GrushAugust 7, 2012

When it comes to the idea of flexible smartphones or wearable electronics, you have to remember that in order for everything to work all components must be truly flexible as well. While we’ve already seen demonstrations of flexible displays, it seems that Professor Keon Jae Lee from the Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology has also created a flexible battery that can be folded, bent and distorted in a variety of ways without losing any of its energy or ability to maintain a charge.

Apparently, these lith-ion batteries are actually made by printing them onto special film. This new technology could truly lead to many new [...]

Extended batteries for the Samsung Galaxy S3 [video]

by: Ankit BanerjeeJuly 19, 2012

What started as a portable means to make and receive calls and text messages, has now been replaced with the desire for a lot of other technologies such as cameras and mp3 players. Our smartphones have become an essential part of our lives, which we use for almost everything. Browsing the internet, checking e-mail, watching videos, listening to music, taking pictures and videos, and gaming, we can do it all on one single device.

What gives us the ability to do so, is the rapidly changing handheld device technology, such as the much faster dual-core and quad-core processors we now have available to us. Unfortunately, one [...]

Scientists develop spray-on Lithium-Ion battery that could turn any surface into a power source

by: Matthew SabatiniJuly 10, 2012

With all of our gaming, constant email checking, and Facebook abuse, it’s a wonder that smartphone batteries can do the job all day. Researchers at Rice University have created a battery that consists of 5 layers, which can be applied by spraying to just about any surface. This new version of the battery will pave the way for more flexible devices and possibly even new types of designs.

To demonstrate the new technology, researchers applied the spray-on battery on nine bathroom tiles, which managed to power a set of LEDs that spelled out “RICE” for a full six hours. The [...]

Where are the long battery life superphones?

by: Gary SimsJuly 7, 2012

There are some people who don’t like smart phones. It isn’t because they don’t like the touch sensitive screen, it’s not an ease of use issue, but rather they don’t like the battery life. In the good old days of feature phones, you could charge up your phone once a week, you could talk for hours, and, if you battery showed only one bar left, you knew it would work for the rest of the day. But not so with smartphones. With a nice bright display to power, plus Wi-Fi, plus GPS, and of course 3G or even 4G, a smart phone battery might last a day, maybe two.

A typical feature phone might use a 1100mAh battery, where as a smart phone could have [...]
