Last year we featured the USBCell, a new kind of battery that could be charged from a standard USB port. Well, developers Moixa plan to bring this new technology to your mobile phones.
It’s not a bad way to go. With so many new functions added to our mobiles – and especially with video gaining prominence – there’s definitely a need to add flexibility to mobile charging. And by going down the USB line, it opens up all manner of sources for adding power to your handset.
It also means the end of having to carry round a bulky mains charger too. No news of a shelf date as yet, or indeed compatibility for handsets, but we’ll let you know more as soon as we have it.
