Microsoft Has A Crazy Plan To Make Your Batteries Last A Lot Longer

A new Microsoft Research project could result in a laptop battery that lasts a lot longer. The solution they propose is still in a prototype phase, meaning it could be years before it becomes available in a product you can buy, if it ever does at all.

Essentially, their solution is to take a whole bunch of batteries, made up of different materials, and use software built into the operating system to intelligently manage which gets used, when. In other words, your operating system could detect when you're just working on a document and shunt you over to a longer-lasting battery.
