A few days ago, there was news about the “next generation” of battery cells, and of course, there is the potential that we could see two-to-three-times battery efficiency in our trusty gadgets.
This is the latest in what is a periodic series of potential breakthroughs of possibly finding the Holy Grail of smartphone battery life. Aside from OS optimizations, CPU efficiencies, and battery cases, the perception is that there has been remarkably little advancements in battery technology (other than them getting bigger).
So, whenever someone announces a possibly breakthrough in battery tech, the media tends to jump all over it and get all excited, including us because, well, we are fans of exceptional battery life on our smartphones and tablets. Of course, with some announcements come a certain amount of hype too.
Long story short, this battery tech isn't coming anytime soon.

Researcher: We've discovered a breakthrough that will make batteries lasts 10 time longer than before. Phone maker: We can now put batteries that are 1/10th as large into our phones. Phone user: With all of these breakthroughs in battery technology, my phone (although thinner than before) still has a crappy battery life.

It would help if OEMs would quit the arms race adding useless features that provide no perceptual benefits that kill battery life. QHD screens are pointless but they kill battery life. Look at the G2 vs the G3. Last year's G2 was one of, if not he longest lasting flagships. This year's G3 has a more efficient processor and according to LG, several innovations to improve battery life. Yet with its QHD screen the battery in the G3 goes dead a half hour sooner than than last year's G2 and an hour or more sooner than other current flagships in PA's battery test.
