Just throwing out a topic for possible discussion.
Apple claims to have achieved Nirvana from their new MacBook lithium batteries. See the apple website (or just turn on any TV and wait 2 minutes for the ad to come on) for details. Questions for the more knowledgeable in the group:
1. What did they change that give these batteries BOTH more power capacity AND a longer service life?
2. Is this patented by Apply, or is it being applied in other arenas as well?
3. What is being said about the possible use of these improvements (whether by Apple or others) in larger Li battery applications, such as hybrids?
I'm new to the forum, but would welcome any lively discussion that ensues.
