While these new batteries are about twice as thick as NEC's first such units, they're still only 0.7 mm thin, and are apparently much more reliable while also delivering 1.4 times more output (specifically, a capacity of 5mAh)."</em></p><p><em><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1289778070.usr10.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></em></p><p>This isn't a technology you are going to see in your next laptop. &nbsp;Instead the focus is on thin and flexible, so think things like flexible epaper displays, etc. &nbsp;Still since they are only calling this the first practical prototype, I wouldn't hold my breath either.</p><p><em></em></p><p><em></em></p>
