MATsolutions' insight:

It is not news that battery technology is sub par in the technology we use every day. Particularly, smartphones are typically not equipped with batteries with large enough capacity to provide power for an entire day's use. As this is a known issue in the tech world, it is not surprising to hear that Samsung is working on new technology for lithium-ion batteries that may double battery life in future smartphones. The new batteries include a new coating technique for battery cathodes, which should result in between 1.5 and 1.8 times higher capacity than those of current commercial lithium-ion batteries. Hopefully, this new technology inspires more research into battery life, increasing the capacity of batteries in other important products as well for the future.
