A recent groundbreaking study has led to success in increasing charging capacity and speed of lithium ion batteries. Professor Harold Kung and his group of engineers at Northwestern University have accomplished this feat by adjusting graphene layers, which are directly related to how fast charging can occur. Now, charging capcity and speed increase by a factor of ten, just by poking small holes in the battery's graphene layers.
Additionally, Kung's team also increased the density of lithium ions, which allowed for their test-batteries to last for over a week on a single charge. (The science behind it isn't so simple, of course.) The downside is that these lithium-ion batteries lost their fast-charging long-lasting abilities after roughly 150 charges, which is a drastic difference in how long lithium-ion batteries normally last.
If perfected, this science could help create the next generation lithium-ion battery. Check out the source link below for more info.

It's been 3 days since the release of Apple's Software Update (5.0.1), which was meant to fix a few of the battery life issues being heard 'round the world. Users have been seeing frequent drops in battery life on their new iPhone 4S'. But if this latest patch hasn't fixed it, then what will?
Some speculate that it's a hardware issue, while most people have determined the problem to lie in the software. And while this patch has smelled some with their battery woes, others who weren't experiencing the problem are now claiming to after the patch.
The best fix for all this? Carry an external battery or charging cable around with you everywhere, because it looks like the problems aren't fixed just yet. Check out ebatts.com for more info on these products.

The iPhone 4S may have been praised for its addition of Siri, but this esteemed phone hasn't been without its troubles either. Since its release, the latest iPhone has had a slew of customers complaining about an extremely short battery life.
The Apple forums have been a great source of information and meetings for those with battery performance woes. Many discovered that bugs in iOS 5 were partly to blame for the sudden drops in battery life, with the bugs coming from the Calendar and Time Zone Settings. However, this doesn't limit the performance issues strictly to iOS 5.
Apple has released a statement saying an official update will be coming in the next few weeks to help alleviate these issues. In the mean-time, check out the links below from techcrunch and cnet for tips on how to get your battery to survive until the official software patch is released.
