Paintable Battery – Yes Spray On Batteries

Many major tech giants seek sleeker and ever-more powerful batteries to power devices such as phones and tables so they’re pushing engineers to create unconventional, more space-efficient batteries. A group of students at Rice University, in Pulickel Ajayan’s lab, have done just that. They actually created a “battery” that can be sprayed on virtually any surface like a spray paint. The idea sounds far fetched, and the project leader, graduate student Neelam Singh, admits she was a bit skeptical herself.

World’s Smallest Battery

Research at Rice University has proved that the work done by Lithium-Ion batteries can also be done with very tiny batteries, which Rice University just produced.

The researchers have packed the energy produced by an entire Lithium-Ion battery into a small nanowire. This battery is 6 times thinner than a bacterium, 100 times thinner than a human hair and 60,000 times smaller than a AAA batttery.

Texas Instruments Will Deliver All-Day Battery In 2013

Texas Instruments has just made a very bold statement. The company claims that by the year 2013, we will have batteries that will last an entire day with regular use. Of course, what you do on your phone or tablet will make a difference.

Playing a mobile game for 12 hours will be quite different than watching HD video for that same time frame. But either way, it will be extremely useful to those who tend to forget their chargers at home, or at work.

Leyden Energy Building Long Life Battery

With the increasing specifications and applications, cell phones now-a-days need more power to operate than they did before. Although the chip performance is doubling every 18 months, as described by Moore’s Law, no one seems that concerned about the battery improvement.

Leyden Energy hopes to produce new batteries with a longer lifetime. They are working on a new battery chemistry that will allow batteries to operate 25 percent longer with a single charge and can be used for 3 years. While the other batteries fade out after an year.

NFC Hack For The iPhone 4

NFC is the newest way to pay for your stuff by allowing you to make transactions using your NFC equipped device. This feature is widely integrated in new Android devices but unfortunately, iPhone 4 doesn’t come pre-equipped with this technology.

Lack of a NFC chip hinders iPhone users from enjoying the blessings of near field communications and sometimes it becomes rather annoying for i-users when they see someone using an NFC equipped Android to make their payment (or so we assume). But as long as there is technology, there will always be those looking for ways to make the most out of it. Hopefully, making payments through your iPhone 4 are no more a problem.

The Timesnap has a large storage of 4GB which can be extended by an SD memory card up to 8GB. And to your amazement, it is also an e-reader (you might need a magnifying lens to read from such a tiny display). And of course, it’s also a watch.
