Before we start, I would like to apologize to the Mods if this thread is improper for any reason. I figured it was not at all like the other battery threads, and thus merited its own thread. It also will be a pain in the neck for me to hunt through the other stickied battery thread, so I made a new one. Now, anyone have any battery questions to ask me? I know I promised a very in depth test/review of Lithium Batteries, and that is coming. But internships and life take precedence. However, I have gotten many PM's with questions about batteries, and many of those questions where similar. Thus, this thread. Ask away, and I will answer. I am happy to help the community, as I know about batteries and also feel that knowledge is meant to be shared freely (with citations and correct credits, of course). I will respond to questions as quickly as I can. -Nkk P.S. Just for reference, I am not some random guy answering questions. I am a student of Physics and Chemical Engineering at a very highly esteemed engineering college. My current undergraduate research involves me working in a Battery lab. I am currently working on a new crystal for the cathode of a Lithium Polymer battery. This structure has about 4 times as much charge per gram as the current Lithium Cobalt structure that is in current cell phone batteries. Also, please no arguing. If you have citations and research to dispute what I say, please present it. Having said that, this is not a debate thread and it is counterproductive to talk about your anecdotes. If they work for you, fine. But if they are not grounded in science and peer reviewed research, they are generally not going to be accepted. Again, Mods, my apologies if this is in the wrong location/whatever. If you want to move this somewhere else to make it accessible by people not in the DInc forum, please do so. I just put it here because this is where I have been promising things.
