Apple has submitted a request for two new patents that based on collected information to automatically adjust battery consumption. Apple's iPhone will continue to monitor your habits when you use the phone, when you use it the most, and when it is idle. Also it will monitor when you charge it and how long do you do it, do you only cherge it when the battery is low, or hold it connected to the charger all day because there's a socket.

Portable electronic devices are everywhere today, from cell phones to tablets, and more find their way into our hands every day.  The power-hungry gadgets we have today often require daily charging, sometimes more often than that.  In the usual course of day-to-day life that isn’t an issue, as power is readily available and inexpensive, but sometimes we need our portable electronics to be portable for more than a day.

IPhone 5 battery leaked

News 3d Apple Logo 102

With just a few days left until the announcement of the new iPhone from Apple, we bumped leaked photos of the battery that is supposed to be in the device on the internet. If you can’t wait to get a glimpse of something, anything from new the iPhone here are some photos for you. The guys at iResQ apparently have quite a few pieces of iPhone and they have decided to place this new battery in their chassis, and it fits perfectly. Hopefully it will solve issues with battery drain while using 3G and LTE which is still quite a big problem. It would be nice if you didn’t have to charge your iPhone literally every day if you intend to do a bit of surfing, check some videos online or maybe play multiplayer games.

Since it was first shown off at CES 2010 (in render form) there has been talk about battery life. Now that we have seen what devices like the Transformer and Transformer prime can do there has been even more speculation on the topic. Well is seems that Asus decided to let Engadget in on some battery performance numbers.
