Electric batteries are in a continuous development, with humanity’s need of having electricity on the go to power its portable technology. Their potential and interest started to increase along with their extensive use in the automotive world, but that’s not all...

Remember those first mobile phones looking like a brick with a huge antenna sticking out at the top? Well, most of their body was the actual battery, which in those times was not too effective, since the need for a huge one.

But now, our smartphones can go around a day or so without recharging thanks to a battery that’s about 4 mm thick and half the phone’s length. And thanks to advanced materials, a new kind of battery the size of your actual phone might even kick start your car, as shown here by Juno Power.

To everyone posting "old", or some variation: if you think it's old news, why are you bumping it back up to the top of the list by posting in it?

If it's just for the points, try posting in the Just For Fun topic. That's what it's for.

The first great leaps in modem battery technology were driven by NASA and the intelligence community. That development continues driven by smart phones and wearable tech.
