Sony is developing new kind of battery

Sony has announced that it is currently developing an entirely new kind of battery that could have a capacity 40% higher than existing modelsWhile smartphones have grown in size and power in recent years, similarly huge leaps in battery technology haven't followed.Battery technology has generally moved fairly slowly, but there are some breakthroughs happening
Sony's new battery will use a sulfur compound as an electrode material, increasing their energy density by volume from 650Wh/l to 1000Wh/l.
This essentially means that when compared to a traditional battery of the same size, the new battery will be able to last 40% longer.
 Sony is aiming to make the batteries commercially available by 2020, so it might take a few more years until they actually make it into your phone.
