Battery Life and 4G Smart Phones


Smart phone designers know that new power hungry phones are killing batteries much faster than the older models. They are beginning to address the problem with new phones like the Droid Razr Maxx and adding extended batteries. Dual-core smart phones are much more powerful than the laptops of just a few years ago but have tiny batteries compared to those of laptops. Otherwise your speedy new 4G phone would look like something like this:

gecko-wall-street-mobile-Motorola DynaTAC 8000X brick phone
Giant Mobile Motorola DynaTAC 8000X Phone from the 80’s. Is this the shape of the iPhone 5?

Soon battery technology will catch up with the fast phones of today. Then something faster will come out and we’ll have to use fuel cells to power them. Or Mr. Fusion.
