So this is what the Droid Maxx is using, lolz.. In all seriousness this is a huge finding which can be applied in many of the electronics we use today both recreationally and life saving. If it's really expensive, I believe this should go towards medical offices / ambulances that would really need this tech vs cell phone use.

Lithium anodes!!!!!!!!!!! I really just want to be able to use my phone for music and games all day without worrying about it dying. This is great news if it can make it into the Nexus 6. But it won't...
Oil co will buy them out and lock it in there vault
would be great
Boy, I still remember reading a news story from a few years back that said that someone discovered a mouth wash formula that eliminated tooth decay. The way it was described, this miracle mouth wash would target the bacteria that caused tooth decay. So going to see a dentist would quickly lose its appeal if said mouth wash were to hit the shelves. Well... soon after it made headlines, COLGATE bought the patent/formula. Probably to make sure that we still use their tooth paste and keep dentist making millions. In the same way, I fully expect this new discovery to mysteriously disappear from the face of the Earth. Because there is no money to be made by making things more efficient.
We haven't gotten at the full potential yet (pun intended). One gets a battery by stacking up as many ions as possible so that when they flow back from one pole to the other, we get electricity.
How much charge would you have if you moved one gram of electrons a hundred feet leaving the opposite charge behind? The charge would be so huge that the attraction between the 2 poles 100 feet from each other could be measured in TONS.
In other words, there is a huge potential here (pun intended again). If we could just figure out how to move a lot more of the electrons to charge our battery. The electrons are there....we just need to find how to set them up right.

Sorry, I am probably to weak in physics to understand your point. I can understand the potential between two poles and the medium for travel determining electron flow. What does distance have to do with it?
Kudos for the D&D referance.

If researchers would stop patenting ideas just to sell them, instead of releasing them to the world like open source, we would see greater benefits for all. Does Elon Musk ring a bell for anyone? Who know where ‘his’ technology will go from here, and that’s the point. I’m all for people making money and recovering lost R&D capital, but some things are bigger than profits.
That's not true. It's just an urban legend that gets passed around from time to time.
1). The bacteria that cause tooth decay are an integral part of your mouth flora. It's not that we can't kill the bacteria -- it's that killing *only* the bad bacteria and leaving the good is effectively impossible (this is why antibiotics give many people GI trouble).
2). Even if we could kill all those bacteria in a treatment, they'd be re-deposited when you ate or drank. Again -- you *need* healthy mouth flora.
3). If you stop and think about it, most of the substances we have that reliably kill high percentages of bacteria are things you really wouldn't want in your mouth at high concentration. Bleach. Ammonia. Really caustic terrible stuff that does Very Bad Things to human tissues.
It's tempting to think that GM bought the magic carburetor that could get 200mpg, or that an evil company sat on magic mouthwash but it's just not true. In most cases, you really wouldn't like the outcome of what happened if you could kill all your mouth flora on an ongoing basis.
Finally: When Listerine was invented, the vast majority of dentists in America had just one function -- they pulled teeth. Without anesthetic. The idea that a company would sit on a perfect mouthwash patent to help out dentistry doesn't track with where our health practices were at when mouthwash was invented.
lol the 200mpg carb! :) I remember that one....
FYI side note... as far as toothpaste, you should NEVER use any toothpaste except plain. No whitening, nothing... just plain. Most of then can actually remove enamel = no good (also, some mouthwashes claim to replace enamel. This is not possible.)
Sounds like good science to me. I hope that they can turn this into real battery improvement, without reaming the masses at the same time.
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

@Joel H - Urban legend? LOL You gotta be kidding me. I just found several articles that covered the story. But here's the original one, straight from the horse's mouth:
If it works I'm all for it. I don't love to always have to be near an outlet to charge my mobile devices.
