Best Battery Life Phone Technology

Everyone wants to have better battery life on their gadgets and one company that’s been working on game-changing battery technology just got a huge vote of confidence from home appliance vendor Dyson. As Technology Review reports, Dyson has agreed to use batteries designed by startup Sakti3 in its products as part of a $15 million investment in the battery tech company.

Sakti3 has developed a lithium-ion battery that’s capable of storing twice as much power as batteries found in today’s smartphones and its deal with Dyson means its technology is closer than ever to coming to market. Technology Review speculates that it will first be used on a cordless vacuum cleaner and other wireless home appliances that Dyson makes.

That said, we still don’t know how long we’ll have to wait before seeing a Sakti3 battery in an actual device since Dyson hasn’t yet announced when the first Sakti3-equipped will be available to buy.

It will also be interesting to see whether smartphone manufacturers show interest in signing similar deals with the company should its early run with Dyson prove successful. Given that everyone wants to have a top-notch smartphone battery, something that doubles the current lithium-ion batteries’ lives would be very hard to resist.
