There aren't enough letters in the alphabet to classify this monstrous battery China's built. D x 1,000? Not even close. With arrays larger than a football field it can store a whopping 36 megawatt hours of power.
According to a rather self-publicising survey conducted by E.ON, Brits waste around £60 a year of electricity per household by just leaving gadgets plugged after they've finished charging -- about £134m a year for the whole country. That's not even taking into account the damage constantly charging something does to the battery.
Nokia's in the process of rolling out an update to its current flagship Windows Phone 7 device, the Lumia 800. It's a minor one, no massive changes, although it should help out on the battery-sucking front a little, as the update provides power efficiency improvements.
Something a bit fishy is going on over at the official Nokia forums. A post addressing complaints about the Lumia 800's battery life by a Nokia staffer was mysteriously altered after letting slip that it's currently only using 1300mAh of its 1450mAh battery.
You know the saying "measure twice, cut once"? Looks like Apple's measuring twice and cutting twice to overcome the battery issues that still plague iOS 5 and the iPhone 4S; the company will reportedly push another update next week to fix the problem. Fingers crossed.
While gadgets improve by leaps and bounds every year, the technology that powers them hasn't. Batteries still suck, unless something comes of this research at Northwestern University that promises new lithium-ion alternatives that charge ten times faster with ten times the capacity.
Even as frustrated iPhone owners complain that Apple's iOS 5.01 update didn't actually fix problems with the iPhone battery life, users are reporting a whole string of new complaints against the iPhone 4S and the new update. Will it ever stop?
Despite the recent update that was supposed to fix it, the iPhone Batterygate continues: Many users in the Apple Support forums are reporting that the iPhone 4S battery keeps dropping fast and inexplicably. But there are other problems too.
Apple just rolled out the update we've been waiting for. The one that fixes the incredible shrinking battery life. Just plug your iPhone into iTunes and start updating. Nowhere near your computer? The over the air update of iOS 5.0.1 is available now.
You might have noticed your new iPhone lasts about as long as Kim Kardashian's marriage—and what's the point of nifty new features if your phone's dead? Use these tweaks to squeeze the most life out of your battery.
My iPhone 4S is an voracious energy-sucking vampire and its internal battery is its victim. I figured Apple was hard at work trying to solve the issue. According to the Guardian they are, but it looks like Apple's not sure why it's happening.
