Panasonic has created two new powerful lithium-ion battery cells that can hold 20-30% more power than the batteries currently on the market. The new batteries not only will greatly increase the battery life of laptop computers, but are also potent enough to be used in electronic automobiles.
It is rumored that the battery can last up to a week without needing to be recharged. This length is an enormous increase in comparison to current laptop and netbook batteries in the market, which can’t make it through half a day before needing to be charged.
The lithium-ion battery might also play a big part in the green revolution, as they can potentially be used to power an entire house. There are endless possibilities for Panasonic’s technological advancement. It has the chance not only to change our computing experience but more importantly the future of environmentally friendly technology.
Still in development, the battery will not be available to the public until sometime during 2011.
