Battery life will better than the early days of smartphones, still leaves a lot to be desired. Going longer than a day is considered “good”. In reality, we should all strive to true, multi-day (or week) runtimes. Unfortunately, battery tech hasn’t progressed as quickly as other areas, hence, the ways in which we recharge those things has had to pick up the slack.
One of the of more “futuristic” ways is wireless charging. The only problem is that it’s kind of slow. Even Samsung’s latest “Fast” version isn’t as fast as QuickCharge 3.0 (or even 2.0) charging specs. LG Innotek, however, has announced today a new breakthrough that will result in 0-50% charges in as little as 30 minutes.
Backwards compatibility is built in with various formats of wireless charging as well as power/speeds (9W, 15W, etc.).
Production of this new tech is supposedly beginning later this year so mainstream products won’t be trickling out until late 2016-early 2017.
