Battery Life: Please Make it Last

Take heart, mobile vendors feel your pain and are working to maker batteries last longer.
This is not one of the hottest topics on the forefront of major tech media, but it is important.
The Washington Post writes “Battery life is one of the most important things for our customers,” said Raj Doshi, product line manager for handhelds at PalmOne Inc., which in April released the Tungsten E2 handheld, lighter and with double the battery life of the previous version. The new handheld is 4.7 ounces, compared with its five-ounce predecessor. “I tell the engineers I want the most battery in a smaller battery size,” Doshi said, but that simple request requires huge technological advances.
