Will batteries ever get better?

This is one technology that sticks to basic physics whose rules don't change. Lithium ion battery technology is the best around and, with an estimated 1.8 billion Li-ion cells in circulation, a lot can go wrong with the sometimes volatile technology, and it has. There is nanotechnology battery design in the works -- many tiny batteries that individually turn on and off, safely and efficiently dispensing power as needed. But electronics device makers would have to redesign how portable devices use power.
