Each year battery technology improves right alongside of computing hardware, processing speed, memory capacity, sensors and other electronic advancements. If you recall Moore’s law, "The number of transistors incorporated in a chip will approximately double every 24 months." This can hold true for battery technology as well, and has opened new doors to higher capacity, longer lasting, and quicker recharging batteries.
Virus-powered batteries are being developed by a team of MIT researchers using lithium-ion battery technology with a harmless virus called M13. The M13 virus is a bacteriophage that creates a lightweight and multi-purpose battery that can be made in any shape or size. This allows the virus powering rechargeable batteries to be woven into closed and used for portable devices, such as iPods, GPS, radios, cell phones and other small devices. The U.S. military is interested in testing this technology on a larger scale with UAV drones.
Rechargeable batteries through kinetic energy are also on the horizon for future batteries. Just simply shake your device to keep it playing your favorite song, track your GPS location, or carry endless amounts of cell phone power. Nokia Corporation has recently filed a patent for the use of a battery using kinetic energy to power a device, which was called the “Piezoelectric Kinetic Energy Harvester.” Kinetic energy powered cell phones definitely look like a possibility for Nokia in the near future.
Swappable batteries are nothing new for electronic device technology. We do this with our cell phones, digital cameras, and radios when we run out of juice and need a full charge immediately. However, we have not seen Electric Vehicles (EVs) with swappable batteries readily available. With the growing amounts of EVs on the road, you can expect to see longer lasting batteries giving further range for electric cars. Many EVs have limited range, but a universal battery pack could resolve this issue by supplying fully charged battery packs that can be swapped at fuel stations across the country.
As technology keeps advancing, so will battery technology. Keep up to date with rechargeable batteries and recycle your used batteries to keep the green trend growing with renewable energy and minimizing your carbon footprint.

Fujitsu is developing a compact and highly-efficient wireless charging system for electronic devices. This charging pad will be able to charge future cell phones, digital cameras, camcorders, and other electronic devices. The wireless charging pad uses a highly-efficient magnetic resonance to transfer power remotely with a power transfer efficiency of 85%. More information on wireless charging pad technology can be found on the Fujitsu Web site.

Finding a digital camera with a long lasting battery life is important, especially if a lot of pictures are taken at one event. Many factors are considered when a manufacturer builds new digital cameras. Digital camera weight, size, color, type, image resolution, usage, zoom, special features, price and battery life are some of the main factors that determine how good the camera really is. Below are the top 10 digital camera models to check out for 2010.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS1 (silver)
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V
Canon PowerShot S90
Samsung DualView TL225 (orange/black)
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1

The three types of batteries you will find associated with digital cameras are model-specific batteries, universal rechargeable batteries, and disposable batteries.
Model-specific digital camera batteries usually have a lithium-ion (Li-ion) or nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) battery chemistry. Advantages of model-specific batteries are they last the longest, come rechargeable with the camera, very compact, excellent battery life gauge, and carry a cheaper cost when compared to disposable batteries. There are disadvantages of model-specific batteries. Additional batteries will need to be purchased if many photos are taken and model-specific batteries will not work on different digital cameras.
Universal rechargeable batteries will have either a lithium-ion (Li-ion) or nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) battery chemistry. Some of the major advantages are long-lived battery life with hundreds of discharge / recharge cycles. Multiple batteries can be purchased, charged and carried on hand if hundreds of photos are taken in one day. Batteries are interchangeable with other cameras that take the same type of batteries, usually being AA-sized batteries. Cost of batteries will be cheaper in the long run, versus disposable batteries. The only downside is that most digital cameras require at least two AA-sized batteries or more.
Disposable batteries are single use, come in standard sizes, and usually have lithium, alkaline or oxy-alkaline battery chemistry. Advantages with disposable batteries is they are readily available in stores, tend to last the longest versus rechargeable batteries, lightweight, and multiple batteries can be carried if hundreds of photos are taken on the same day. The disadvantage of disposable batteries is they are bad for the environment because they create extra waste. Alkaline batteries don’t last very long and are disposed very quickly when compared to a rechargeable battery.
Each digital camera owner has their own preferences for the type of digital camera they want and the type of batteries they want to use. With the fact that rechargeable batteries last the longest, can be used repeatedly for several years, and save the most money in the long run would make them a better choice. Just as long as you have battery power for your digital camera when you need to snap photos.
Replacement digital camera batteries are available for your digital camera.
