Ergorapido 2in1 – the pregnant battery-powered vacuum cleaner

No, it's not really a pregnant vacuum cleaner, it's the latest AEG Ergorapido 2 in 1 – a battery-operated vacuum with a hand-held mini-vacuum in the handle that home appliance manufacturer AEG is showing at this year’s IFA in Berlin. The pick-of-the-litter is the EUR 210 (USD$300) Ergorapido plus which has an 18-volt lithium ion rechargeable battery and outperforms its sister models by 20%, enabling around 30 minutes of cleaning.  Read More

Business-people who never have enough hands when making electronic presentations will applaud the new Nortek Duplus Mini Wireless Presenter 2.4GHz Mouse. Co-designed by Samsung, it's a mouse and laser pointer all-in-one with an operating range of up to 10m, multi-functional click wheel, quick and continuous scrolling, and rechargeable battery.  Read More

Sony's new rechargeable batteries that use Olivine-type Lithium Iron Phosphate as the cath...

We cover our fair share of battery technology breakthroughs here at Gizmag, from lithium-sulfur batteries to NanoEnergy batteries. But it’s less often that we get to report on new and improved batteries actually hitting the market. So it was nice to learn that Sony has launched a new type of rechargeable Li-ion battery that promises an extended life span more than four times that of existing Li-ion batteries and can be charged to 99 percent of its full capacity in 30 minutes - approximately half the charge time of Sony’s current Li-ion battery line up.  Read More

With one squeeze, the AtoD Battery will give you 1.5V of power to substitute for any sized...

People think deeply about everything, even batteries. Comedian Demetri Martin, for example, decided the reason there’s no B-Battery is because it’d sound like you had a stutter asking for one. A group of Korean designers, on the other hand, has decided what the world really needs is a rechargeable nickel hydroxide battery that, thanks to a memory foam casing, can squeeze down to fit any size from AAA to D.  Read More

The THINERGY Micro-Energy Cell is available in sizes as small as 0.5in (12.7mm) square

The new line of THINERGY Micro-Energy Cells from Infinite Power Solutions Inc (IPS) could soon be powering small devices such as autonomous wireless sensors, powered smart cards, active RFID applications, and implantable medical devices. The manufacturer says these tiny, rechargeable, thin-film batteries combine the energy density of traditional batteries with the high discharge current of supercapacitors. With some models measuring just 0.5 inches square (12.7mm) and less than 0.01 inches thick (0.17mm), IPS claims these are the most powerful batteries for their size.  Read More

Structure of the lithium-sulfur batteries at the nanoscale level (Credit: Dr. Linda Nazar,...

A Canadian research team led by Dr. Linda Nazar has synthesized a prototype of a lithium-sulphur rechargeable battery that, thanks to its peculiar nanoscale structure, can store three times the power of a conventional lithium-ion battery in the same volume while being significantly lighter and potentially cheaper to manufacture.  Read More
