Mobile phone battery life extended 12x by PhD student
The Apple iPhone 3G is a great mobile device, but the main problem with it is the battery life, same goes for BlackBerry models and even other mobile handsets; most users want longer battery life.
Well maybe they just might get it as a PhD student at Canada’s Carleton University may have just come up with an answer to the problem.
The student, Atif Shamim, hacked such mobile handsets and ripped out all the wiring connecting the electrical circuits to the antenna and developed a module so the connection can operate wirelessly, which he says results in almost twelve times less power consumption than normal, which undoubtedly means longer battery life.
Not indication if this tech will be used in mobile handsets, but I’m sure there will be several companies wanting to grab hold of this tech.
