5 battery technologies that would make your phone last longer and charge faster
Whoever, or, rather, whichever team, as scientific discoveries today are rarely made by a single person, reinvents the battery, will become billionaire overnight is the common understanding of Wall Street analysts betting on breakthroughs in battery tech.

It won't be long before everything - from our cell phones, through our cars, to our houses - uses some sort of electricity storage that ought to be cheaper and much more efficient than what we have now.
