Sony battery makeup to change

After all its nightmares with li-ion, Sony probably can't wait to jump to the safer li-poly technology

After facing the laptop battery fiasco all throughout 2006, Sony Electronics President Stan Glasgow said last week that he believes notebook makers will likely soon incorporate lithium polymer battery technology instead of the currently used lithium ion, according to a report on CNET News.

Perhaps in a reference to the small margin for error in designing and manufacturing batteries, Sony’s Glasgow said: "There is not too much more power we want to cram into lithium ion." After what Sony experienced with the lithium ion technology, the company will probably be glad to usher in the safer and more advanced uses of lithium in its batteries.

The ongoing development of lithium polymer battery technology is of particular interest to Sony, Dell, Apple, Lenovo, Toshiba and all other OEMs affected by numerous battery recalls over the past year. The recalls stemmed from incidents of faulty lithium ion cells, which caused laptop batteries to catch fire and explode.
