When will your phone battery last as long as your Kindle?

When will your phone battery last as long as your Kindle? | The Future of Mobile Technology | Scoop.it

With the increase in more powerful components in a modern day 'smart phone' has led to the need for bigger better batteries, and thus the li-ion (Lithium ion) battery was born.  This battery was a god-send to the technology world, able to hold enough charge for one maybe two days at a time, but like all good things, the li-ion battery's reign over the battery world is coming to an end.  The technologies and hardware being created and developed today for 'smart phones' are requiring more and more power to use and thus created a need for a new kind of battery, the Graphite Anode li-ion battery.  This battery can be the same size as a regular li-ion, but hold 2.5x the amount of charge per-gram.

Disappointing battery life continues to plague smartphones even as they improve in every way. When will new batteries finally save us from the nightly recharging routine?

Advances in Mobile Phones

Advances in Mobile Phones | The Future of Mobile Technology | Scoop.it
Mobile phones have come a long way in a very short time, and the advances seem to keep coming every month.
Joseph Deak's insight:

The way mobile phones have have changed and advanced in such a short time indicates that there could be much more growth in this area of technology in the years to come.  Going from 'Bricks' that you could only talk to other on, to 'smart phones' that can do anything that a computer can do and more, in the palm of your hand, in the space of 20 years.

Phonebloks: a modular smartphone you can update one piece at a time

Phonebloks: a modular smartphone you can update one piece at a time | The Future of Mobile Technology | Scoop.it
Rather than throwing out an entire phone when something breaks or you want to upgrade, the Phonebloks concept fits together like Lego so you can swap pieces out as needed.
Joseph Deak's insight:

With the idea of a Modular Mobile phone on the table in the near future, many companies are competing to be the first one to release it into the market.  Much like Google's Project Ara, Phone blocks are working on a similar concept, where, like 'Lego', if a part of the phone is older or getting slow, you can just replace it with a newer BETTER model, thus reducing the need to get a completely new mobile phone, and saving precious materials and money.

Joseph Deak's insight:

The Modular mobile phone has been a figment in every 'techy's' imagination, where when one part is getting slow, or does not have enough storage, you can simply swap it out for the newest, latest model without having to purchase a whole new phone, and thanks to Google, with its Project Ara, this technology, this DREAM, is closer to our finger tips than ever before.

Joseph Deak's insight:

With OLED displays, the possibility of creating new technologies to improve the way we live (New medical technology, that is more portable and easier to use), reduce the problems of having the screens on devices break (You will not have to worry about dropping your device, as the screen is not glass, but Plastic) and it will lower the power consumption of the device, thus greatly reducing the amount of electricity that is needed to run the Worlds technology.
