Researchers at Stanford University’s Precourt Institute for Energy have unveiled a new aluminum-ion battery that could one day replace the lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries we use to power pretty much everything , from our watches to our tablets and our electric vehicles . The aluminum battery can be produced more cheaply than current alternatives, is not quite so bad for the environment as alkaline batteries, and unlike Li-ion batteries, it won’t explode —”even if you drill through it.” Read the rest of New, cheap, flexible aluminum battery charges in just one minute, won’t explode Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: aluminum battery , Battery Charging , battery fire , battery life , battery safety , charging times , flexible battery , lithium ion battery alternative , renewable energy grid storage , solar battery , stanford battery

Photo via Shutterstock Laptop technology has come a long way in the past decade or so, but sales of mobile phones and tablets are leaving PCs in the dust. Part of that has to do with battery life; because they use more powerful hardware, laptops simply can’t compete with longer-lasting tablet batteries. But Intel is preparing to release a new generation of Core processors , known as Haswell, that will help to bridge the gap, giving laptops 50 percent more battery life. That will enable travelers to watch up to three HD movies on a laptop before the battery conks out.
