Car Parts that Store Battery Power

clock September 30, 2010 20:25 by author Ty

Volvo is developing car body panels to be used as energy storage with nanomaterials made of extremely thin and strong carbon fiber. The roof, hood and doors will be used as battery storage for energy and can reduce weight by 15% per panel.  By adding these energy battery panels, the battery power capacity is nearly doubled in a hybrid and EV car. Additional rage for an electric vehicle (EV) car is projected to be an additional 80 miles. The body panels will charge and discharge when the car’s electric motor is used. Energy can be stored in the panels thorough the cars alternator / generator, harnessing energy when the car brakes, and by plugging into the electricity power grid. Volvo’s ultimate goal is the replace the battery entirely, but more research and development is required to make that jump.

The Battery-Charging Backpack

For the more tech-savvy, device-wearing, constant-blog-updating consumer, Quirky has announced a product that you can not only use, but wear! Trek Support is a backpack that charges multiple devices at once. With 3 USB ports on the Gadget Dock, consumers can charge phones, MP3 players, iPods, cameras, and portable gaming systems. The backpack's integrated rechargeable battery can charge different devices for up to 7 hours.

To hold all these devices, the backpack is designed with numerous mesh pockets, with one laptop sleeve big enough to fit a 15" laptop. And besides the mesh pockets inside the backpack, there are extra mesh pockets on the straps, with a USB port there as well, in case you want to travel while listening to music and charging your device. Two zippered pockets located on the outside of the backpack can hold other items, like wallets.

Trek Device is made out of durable waterproof nylon, with the Gadget Dock and and laptop sleeve made of padded nylon.

And the cherry on top? TSA is allowing these bags to be used in their screening processes. When traveling with the Trek Support, you no longer have to take your laptop out of the backpack: just unzip it the backpack completely, place it on the conveyor belt, and you're good to go.

The only downside is, you can't buy this product directly right now. Quirky's presale will take your credit card and, once they've confirmed that enough units have been bought, the products will ship out. So if you want to order one and get it soon, spreading the news might be a good idea.

For those that prefer a traditional charger and not a whole backpack, ebatts.com sells chargers and batteries for numerous devices...and you won't have to carry a backpack to do it.

HP Laptop That Lasts 24 Hours on Battery

clock September 24, 2010 18:42 by author Jeremy

Between mobile computing, mass-texting, constant recording, and non-stop work, today's technology age relies a lot on battery powered devices. Unfortunately, you still have to recharge your electronic device at some point. Longer lasting batteries are an important factor for consumers, and HP is starting to show just how competitive they are in this field.

With HP's latest laptop model, the HP EliteBook 6930p, consumers can reach up to 24 hours of battery life without having to charge their device once. Of course, this has certain prerequisites, namely their Ultra Capacity Battery and an LED display, but it may just be worth it for customers who are always on the move.

Though the EliteBook 6930p is the only HP battery so far to pass the 24-hour mark, there are still several other HP laptops that can surpass 10, and even 15, hours. The 6730b and the 6530b can both pass 15 hours with the Ultra Capacity Battery, and the 2533r can hit 15 hours with just the HP Extended Life Battery.

Currently, HP’s Ultra Capacity Battery is only available for a handful of models (in comparison to their large laptop selection). All other replacement HP laptop battery models are available on eBatts.com where you can find Hi-Capacity laptop batteries for HP laptops and other laptop manufacturers as well.
