Close to solving the mystery why some batteries fail
Boffins from Stanford University and the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have come up with a new way to look inside a battery and find out why some fail.
Huge brain needs huge power
While driverless cars are supposed to be the next big thing, there is a significant hurdle they have to overcome – power.
Boffins at the Rice Lab have developed anodes comprising porous carbon made from asphalt that showed exceptional stability after more than 500 charge/discharge cycles which means batteries can be charged 20 times faster.
Just plug it in and watch the fireworks
Those super, cool, innovative design people at Apple have slipped in an easter egg function with the new iPhone 8 Plus so that it detonates when you try to recharge it.
iOS is robbery, assault on battery
A study conducted by security research firm Wandera has confirmed that iOS 11 is causing iPhone and iPad batteries to drain twice as fast.
Runs off radio signals
US boffins have emerged from their smoke filled labs with a prototype of a battery-free mobile phone.
Ready for electric cars
Toyota is in production engineering for a solid state battery, which uses a solid electrolyte instead of the conventional semi-liquid version used in today's lithium-ion batteries.
Researchers from the University of Washington are working on a technique which will make batteries a thing of the past for mobile phones.
Samsung has launched a 5,100mAh battery pack for the Galaxy S8 and S8+
