Extreme IT: Battery assault.It seems that no matter what the latest 'must have' portable gadget (1) Slang for any hardware device, typically small. Synonymous with "gizmo."
(2) A mini application that resides on a computer desktop or personal home page, typically found in the Windows environment. of the day is - mobile phone, PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) A handheld computer for managing contacts, appointments and tasks. It typically includes a name and address database, calendar, to-do list and note taker, which are the functions in a personal information manager (see PIM). or emailer - one thing remains constant: rubbish battery life. While hardware innovations are constantly producing more powerful machines, battery innovation lags behind.
But joint research between Bell Labs, part of network giant Lucent, and mPhase could herald a whole new era for battery technology. The Nanostructured Created by nanotechnology. Novel Battery, which was demonstrated at the Nanotech 2005 conference in May, could result in batteries with a life span of 15-20 years. That is well in excess of current gadgets and even the most durable batteries used in storage appliances expect to degrade TO DEGRADE, DEGRADING. To, sink or lower a person in the estimation of the public.

The batteries use special properties of certain hydroscopic electrolytes Electrolytes
Salts and minerals that can conduct electrical impulses in the body. Common human electrolytes are sodium chloride, potassium, calcium, and sodium bicarbonate. that can be stored on a microscopic microscopic /mi·cro·scop·ic/ (mi?kro-skop´ik)

The advantage of this type of design is that it promises to radically reduce battery size and weight. It is also possible to customise the design so that batteries can be built to fit into any pre-designed space.
The batteries also offer improved power densities compared to conventional designs. They are not yet ready for commercial production, but have already won praise from analysts at research group Frost & Sullivan. "mPhase's battery technology has the potential to herald new portable device applications in the aerospace, defence, consumer electronics, industrial, and healthcare sectors," it says.
