Researchers say “yolk and shell” can save rechargeable batteries

Okay, before you go and soak your rechargeable batteries into tubs of egg yolk, you better read this article first. While batteries are of course a very crucial part of our enjoyment of our digital devices, the constant charging and discharging leads to deterioration over time. But scientists and researchers from Tsinghua University and MIT may have just discovered the solution to this problem: applying the “yolk and shell” principle may just save our dischargeable batteries.

Oukitel K10000 images leaked, brace yourself for its 10,000 mAh battery

While big tech companies are trying to put 4000 mAh batteries in their latest smartphones, an obscure brand named Oukitel is preparing a model packed with some 10,000 mAh battery.

When Android M was announced at this year’s Google I/O conference, we’ve started to look forward to some exciting features coming with Android’s new iteration. One of them is called Doze, which is Android’s contribution to the ever present problem of battery life. It is a deep sleep mode for your device that increases the standby time by more than double. That feature was put to the test by German tech blog ComputerBase.de.

Samsung developing denser batteries, slimmer camera modules

This is not a surprise, if you guys know what I mean. Samsung should be doing research in these areas, given the trend of ever-increasing battery capacity and the “slimming down” of devices. We are talking about Samsung looking into denser batteries (that means higher capacity to you), and slimmer camera modules (which means slimmer devices overall).

New tech captures wasted phone energy, translates to 30% more battery charge

Researchers from the Ohio State University are ready to bring out some new technology which will address the ever-growing problem of battery life in mobile devices, particularly in smartphones. The new technology doesn’t have a proper name yet, but what it does is capture the phone’s wasted energy and gives your battery 30% more charge per use. Now tell me if there’s anyone out there who doesn’t want that?

Google enters battery race, looks to improve current tech

Looks like everybody who’s everybody in the mobile device industry is looking at better, badder, more kick-butt batteries – that is, without the hyperbole, a battery that will last longer and will fit into smaller spaces than the current lithium-ion standard. Google is the latest name to get into the game of who will produce what is considered the “holy grail” right now in mobile devices – a longer lasting, thinner, and probably flexible battery.

Pixel OFF app saves power on LED screens

LED and AMOLED screens are admired by screen junkies all over the word because they produce the deepest blacks in a mobile device display. This is because LED screens, including Samsung’s more preferred AMOLED screens, just basically turn off when they're assigned to draw the "black" color. That’s what the new app “Pixel OFF” tries to do, because theoretically, LED pixels not emitting light draws no electrical power.
