Japanese research and development firm Eamex claims to have found a new way to increase the typical average life of a high-capacity lithium-ion battery. Eamex's new technology will allow the demanding batteries to sustain over 10,000 recharges over the course of 20 years.


I remember just a few years ago how thrilled we consumers were with 1200-1400mAH in NiMH AA cells. Now we have twice that capacity ... It's very exciting seeing both consumer and commercial-grade battery technology mature.
