    So this is a prof at my school, the University of North Texas (GO MEAN GREEN!)

    He's currently working on a project to reduce the amount of energy it takes to charge devices and making the battery last longer, check it out:

    Excellent. Any efforts to improve efficiency of batteries is very welcome. Li-ion was a pretty big breakthrough, but there hasn't been any big leaps for a while.

    He would be my best friend and I bet he could make TONS of money in the process if cell phone battery efficiency could be improved.

    Electronics are moving so fast..advancing like crazy. I love my Evo..and its probably already outdated lol

    But battery power, power supply..all that jazz..Hasnt been able to keep up. Before technology advances, batteries need need to advance. They're not keeping up with the gadgets they're powering.
