    Came across this on BGR.

    Now this is a smartphone feature I'd pay more for.

    Batteries that charge 10x faster and last 10x longer just 5-years out, scientists say

    Wouldn't be good for phones. Not at the moment anyway. People keep their phones for 3-4 years max. 150 charges is like half a year if charged everyday (face it, there will be more powerful hardware in there by the time it comes out).

    And that's if Chevron or Shell don't buy up the patents like they do with other battery technology.

    I'd love to see atleast one battery technology from the past few years surface to consumers.

    Ahh, but since it will last 10x longer (up to a week according to the article) then 150 charges falls right in the "norm" for a smart phone, about 2 1/2 - 3 years. I'd buy it.
