New technology could expand lithium-ion battery life for up to 20 years

I have been an indignant person for years with the weak and slow evolution of electronic batteries. Turn-and-move paint some new research and discoveries, but we haven't seen a boom on the market or any major revolution that changes things as we know it. Still, it never hurts to stay tuned to what's been going on for an hour, who knows, maybe something will happen.

Japanese company Eamex revealed this week that it has found a way to solve a series of problems we face today with lithium-ion batteries, developing a new technology that will allow them to be charged and discharged more than 10,000 times, increasing their useful life up to 20 years. Apple is one of the manufacturers that best developed its batteries, promising today up to 1,000 recharge cycles in 5 years, that is, 10 times less.

By the end of 2010, Eamex intends to produce a battery model with a density of 10,000W / kg, which is sufficient power to equip electric cars / scooters. It is not yet known whether the same technology can be used in batteries for gadgets and laptops, but the trend is.

Of course, this is pretty cool, but I'm really interested in a battery that allows me to carry my iPhone and / or MacBook Pro by not charging it for, I don't know, a month which would be pretty cool.
