[GeekWire] Battery breakthrough: New technology promises to triple lithium ion capacity - Page 4

post #31 of 37
I have read articles about increase in battery efficiency before.. I hope its about time we finally see this, plugging in my laptop is getting real old.

battery have evolved a lot but so did our energy requirement !(luxury)they couldnt dream of an electric car or a hybrid in the past ,now they can!

This si good, if I can buy one for an existing device. If I need a new device then this is quite not as good.

This is the problem...
We make our chips smaller, so that we can do the same work for less power better TFLOP/Watt, but we always want more power, so we end up using the same or more Watts...less than 10 years ago a high end PC would require a 300W PSU (with worse efficiencies etc mind you)...now we have "need" for 500W+ PSUs...slightly better PSU efficiency cannot make up the difference...

We make engines that can do more than 10 miles / gallon on those tracks? - Great, lets make bigger engines so that we don't ruin the trend.
We make even more efficient engines that lower consumption while bringing vastly more power on demand? Great, we always needed that 0-60/0-100 5.5 sec 2 metric ton SUV...

We get more efficient in what we do and how we use power, yet instead of lowering our footprint, we just consume more till we match or we surpass our current one...otherwise it is not thought as progress.
Doing what a PIII did 10 years ago with 1/10th the power, is lame. We get cell phones that do more than that. But it is still lame...we need the desktop, the laptop, the cell, the tablet that all can do that...

Now we will get better batteries...once more, as batteries is probably one of the fastest growing / evolving sectors in the technologies involved with portable devices.
Will we say
"great, my iPhone now can last for 3-4 days for the same consumption", or will we go
"great - I can push 3 times the performance now without losing running time"....
most likely the 2nd will have a better impact on sales, so we will go the 2nd option (still remember my 1st Li-Pol cell phone, a nokia 6310i that could last 9-10 days on a single charge).

Today in the US, the average person consumes 50x more than the average person in the developing countries, using imported resources under shady conditions, and relying on abused workforce to outsource production. Yet lowering our "standards" is preposterous. Is against progress.

@dtolios, While you are right in many aspects, you still need to consider that there are many, many more markets out there that are not in the same boat as the U.S. Like you mentioned, we consume 50x more resources than the average person in developing countries. But considering that there are many developing and near-developed countries that are vastly more populous that the U.S., the overall impact of technology such as this is going to enable those people much more than it will "U.S.," which is what makes it so desirable. And with the state of the U.S. economy, it is likely that there will be many people here that will benefit as well.

I agree with you for the most part, though. One thing holding me back from doing the bulk of my computing on a low-wattage, handheld device as opposed to a PC is only the fact that I can't afford the buy-in at this point. When I can, I intend to only switch this big hog on if there's a really great game out there that I can get into (happening less and less lately), or have a need for large amounts of storage (again, need a job first). I just don't see as many people out there with the disposable income to buy a 7.0 liter Corvette or a 4-ton offroad 4x4, just cuz they can. Sure, they're out there, but they're not the majority and they seem to be more of a minority every day.

3x the battery performance? That means my M17xr3 could do 18 hours of web browsing... holy mother of god

It's not really that, it's the fact that are smartphones are getting so advanced that it's hard to keep up. We already have some type of future end-game when it comes to smartphones - meeting desktop PC specs. Batteries are still evolving with no real end game insight.
