    It sometimes seems like there is no one out there working on making batteries for all of our favorite mobile gadgets. We are constantly inundated with new processors, new displays, and new radio tech, but as our devices get faster and faster, the amount of time their battery lasts seems to be getting worse. Luckily, it turns out there really are researches out there who are working hard to solve this problem. Today's news shares that an amazing breakthrough has been made that could almost triple the amount of power output that our current lithium-ion batteries can produce.

    Researchers at Rice University recently figured out a way to use crushed silicon anode to vastly improve the output efficiency of current lithium-ion batteries. Here's a quote with the skinny,

    Can you imagine getting almost three days of use with your smartphone? Exciting stuff!
