A Two-Day Laptop Battery!

Recommended Posts

Yes, that is what I said... A laptop battery that will last two days with continuous use! Sound too good to be true? Well it is not according to the recent Gizmag article. The new Fuel Cell from UltraCell says that it can power a laptop computer for two days on a single charge. The article also states that the product is currently beta testing but that it might be available for consumers by the end of the year. Wouldn't this be wonderful news for us as we enter 2007? I think so...

A fuel cell? Where will all that excess water go? We all know how well electric computers and water go well together don't we? Not to mention the size.

The FX does not run very hot. However the EE does. Yet both have been used in high-performance laptops.

But if the fuel-cell technology progresses as fast as the article I posted said then battery life by 2007 will become a non-issue!

Hopefully, but heat and size will still be an issue. ;)

:lol: Water cooling will add to size.

 

True but think about this... A notebook that will last two days on one charge and is water cooled! (Do you really need it to be less than 1 inch thin?) I would even settle for 1.5 inches if it could do those two things!

Steve jobs-No no no, i dont care if it the battery lasts two day or is water cooled an can hold a Pentium EE!!! It has to be a inch thin!! we are Apple, we sell our products on how they look not how work!!! this is apple degin here, it is totally irrelevant!!!

Dvorack- DITCH OSX AND RUN WINDOWS!!!!!!!!! PEOPLE ARE USED TO BIG FREAKING COMPUTERS WITH BIG CASES!!!!!

Jobs-ahhhhhh, i like i like, lets do that!!

New Apple event-Jobs, i am pleased to introduce the new Mac Book Por EXtreme.

It has the dual Pentium EEs and it water cooled with a two day battery. this will retai lfor 4999 and is 4 inches thick, but it takes the beauty of the MBP and fuses it with the power of Windows and Intel. crowd goes crazy9 as usual.)

Speaking of Longer lasting batteries as I was on the plane from LA to Chicago yesterday [a 4 hour trip which would be to long to continually use the soon to be mine MBP] I was reading about external batteries available for many laptops that are large flat units that go under a laptop and have a plug that fits where the power cords plug in. The only thing is that of course there is not a unit that would fit the MBP so I was wondering if there is another solution out there that would work with a macbookpro?
