If you're tired of your handheld devices losing their charge by day's end, a Wilmington company may eventually have a solution for you.
According to a story on WCVB.com, Wilmington-based Lilliputian Systems believes it can create technology that would allow batteries on cell phones, laptops, tablets and other devices charged for up to two weeks.
Mouli Ramani, a Lilliputian employee, told WCVB that the key to the potential creation is a solid oxide fuel cell that would extend battery length.
"Imagine if this were embedded within the phone or my tablet or laptop," said Ramani. "You literally will have a phone that lasts for two weeks."
The WCVB story continued to say that the idea for the technology was developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
"What we've done is create a technology that really breaks the mold," said Lillipution CEO Ken Lazarus in the article. "We can make your device not run out of power."
