Rice University researchers have discovered a way to triple the battery life of lithium-ion batteries using crushed silicon anode; the crushed silicons can hold up to 10 times the amount of lithium ions than the number that today's cells can hold...

All the hue and cry over batteries in devices and all it takes is sand to solve our battery issues :)

There's been like 3 or 4 advancements like this in the past few months. It's great but I'd really like to see something actually happen with this tech. Come to market!

I agree with Captain_"D", advancements in the area of making longer lasting batteries have been in the news more and more as of late. Which is another reason i'm happy that my SG-Note has a removable battery. Bring on the sweetness of these longer lasting batteries... ;)

That's a great point. These batteries would probably be backwards compatible with phones today and with a removable battery you could just make the switch. So that's a selling point for another reason now.

Indian scientists are brilliant! Alas, they get necessary facilities only in other countries...
Nice invention! Hope to see it coming soon to phones.

I just imagined the next generation galaxy note (the current is still blowing my mind!), with a battery that lasts for two whole days under my itchy thumbs!

Get the "Will it Blend" guy over here. We need to make some batteries!
