Alexandro Volta, inventor of the battery


Recommended Posts

Got to explore the Alessandro Volta Temple in Como, Italy. Pretty impressive physicist. Invented the first battery back in the 1800.






Volta's work on the Law of capacitance is the reason the unit of electrical potential has been named the volt.

      Came across a youtube video of a wireless device dated from 1922 on British Pathe

      There are lots of reviews out there about the 5s and its battery life, but not many specific to Sprint. For those that have already gotten one, any impressions on how the battery is holding up for you?
      Also, if you could mention if you spend most of your day on EVDO vs LTE vs WIFI, that would be helpful as well.

      I've heard around these forums that LTE will not drain a phone's battery any more than 3g on newer phones.  I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 though and that seems not accurate in my case to the point where I almost dread LTE showing up because I'll be having to go on airplane mode within a couple hours.
      Even when I go to a place with strong Sprint LTE signal with high data rates (e.g.; 20 mbps), my phone will only last a few hours at most before I am in the yellow.  If I am on 3g though with that kind of signal and general use, I can generally last a day without charging.  
      Is the Samsung Galaxy S3 just not good at LTE battery life or is LTE simply a battery hog?  I am hoping it is the former since I'm going to be upgrading soon.

      Welcome to the Way Back Machine.  Came across an old AMPS Promotional Video.  Pretty entertaining.

      You have got to love the gold chains.

      Just wondering if other people have noticed increased battery life after alot of the NV upgrades as I have here in NYC. I typically would get between 7-8hrs on a GS3 on full charge. Now, using my  girlfriends GS3, I get nearly 10hrs. That is a solid 20-30% increase in battery life. I did expect a slight bump in battery life..but not as much as I have ended up getting..
      As a side note, I purchased an HTC ONE on release date and get about 12hrs on one charge with heavy use.
