Researchers led by Monash University in Australia have developed what they say is the 'most efficient' version of a lithium-sulfur battery; one capable of powering a smartphone for five full days of continuous use. The team has filed a patent for the manufacturing process they developed and they report interest from 'some of the world's largest manufacturers.'

Prototype lithium-sulfur power cells were manufactured in Germany, according to an announcement from the university published last week. The technology holds promise for revolutionizing everything from consumer gadgets like cameras and phones to larger systems involving vehicles and solar power. The newly developed lithium-sulfur battery offers more than four times the performance of the market's current most efficient batteries.

With this level of battery performance, photographers and filmmakers could spend weeks in remote locations with only power banks as their power source, eliminating the need to tote around and use solar chargers, which are dependent on direct sunlight and often take several hours or more to recharge a battery.

In addition to improved performance, the Li-S battery technology is also said to have less of an environmental impact than the lithium-ion battery products currently in use. The new battery prototype utilizes the same materials used to manufacture ordinary lithium-ion batteries; as well, the process is said to have lower manufacturing costs.

According to the university, additional testing of the technology with solar grids and cars will take place in Australia early this year. Major lithium battery manufacturers in Europe and China are interested in upscaling the production of these lithium-sulphur batteries.

sounds interesting but i wonder if there are any drawbacks to it compares to current battery types.

wow.  didn't know your phone can last up to 3 days of battery.  that is cool.  what year model is it?  you are right its not that big of a deal if this lithium-sulphur battery can last up to 5 days when your current phone can last up to 3 days.

Added: i just re-read your post and realize you meant when the phone is releases is when you are going to buy it.  so that means it hasn't been release yet.  sorry for my bad grammar and english comprehension.

My phone now is a Motorola G4. Old, still works but a bit glitchy because of its age. I'm lucky if my battery lasts to lunch if I use it lol. I honestly can't complain. I got over 3 years on that phone. I'm sure if I did a reset, it'd last a bit longer but it's just so outdated the apps don't work as well anymore and slows down the phone. And the battery is surely not up to par anymore. When it was new I could go a day, day and a half without a charge.

i am not sure if this is the motorolla phone that you are about to get but according to this website, this upcoming motorolla smartphone that supports 5G can receive data up to 4.2 gbps.  that is a lot of data that it can wirelessly receive in a second.  pretty cool. B)

here is the link to the website:
