A new development in extending the range of electric cars on a single charge of a battery could soon mean range anxiety is more of a thing of the past. This interesting research breakthrough comes from Australia’s University of Wollongong (UOW).
Resistive memory cells (ReRAM) are regarded as a potential, yet promising platform for future generations of computer memories.
A newly-developed, stretchable lithium-ion battery could be used in the human body to power bionic implants and monitor brain or heart activity.
As promised, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has released the log of the electric car that New York Times writer John Broder claimed last week had failed to perform.
A big row has broken out over a review of the Tesla all-electric car in the New York Times last week.
Scientists from South Korea have developed the world's first imprintable and flexible battery.
The trouble with robots, says DARPA, is that no matter how good they are, they have an annoying tendency to run out of juice. It's no good carrying heavy equipment halfway to where it's needed; even worse is a robot that gets halfway though disarming a roadside bomb.
Nickel-iron batteries, a rechargeable technology developed by Thomas Edison more than a century ago, have been largely out of favor since the 1970s - until now.
Almost a quarter of apps that contain Android's explicit power control APIs, or wakelocks, may have major battery-draining bugs.
Free mobile apps using third party services to display ads are draining users' batteries, researchers from Purdue University and Microsoft say.
Researchers at MIT say they have developed a new type of low-cost battery that could be the future of affordable energy storage systems.
So, increasingly, we've got this whole renewable energy thing going on. But integrating all that new solar and wind power into the power grid remains a challenge.
A new type of lithium battery developed by the University of Southampton and lithium battery technology company REAPsystems is claimed to improve the efficiency and reduce the cost of solar power.
The iPhone 4S is Apple's most popular model yet, according to a survey - and it's all because of Siri.
Researchers from Northwestern University are working on developing a super-battery that can keep a cellphone charged for a week and be recharged in just 15 minutes.
Researchers at Aalto University in Finland have designed a network proxy that they say can cut the power consumption of 3G smartphones by up to three quarters.
Apple's admitted that some of its iPod Nanos have been overheating, and is offering users replacements.
As promised, Apple's released iOS 5.0.1, the update designed to fix the battery problems many users have been experiencing with the new iPhone 4S.
Apple's confirmed that a series of iOS 5 bugs are causing battery problems for many iPhone 4Ss.
Researchers at Clemson University have identified a promising new binder material for lithium-ion battery electrodes that they hope will boost energy storage capacity: seaweed.
