Best answer: Yes, the HP Spectre Folio 13 battery life is good enough to see you through up to 18 hours of use with the Wi-Fi model and around 14 hours should you opt for 4G LTE. It'll be more than enough for a full day's work.HP: HP Spectre Folio 13 ($1,300+) Spectre Folio's internals are super-efficient HP acted much like a magician during the development of the Spectre Folio 13. Not only did the company choose to mix things up with some premium leather in place of traditional aluminum, but HP also worked very closely with Intel to make this notebook astonishingly efficient. Intel's 8th Generation Core i5-8200Y and i7-8500Y chips with support for gigabit Wi-Fi strike a solid balance between performance and efficiency, while the motherboard produced by HP and Intel is one of the smallest the company has used in one of its laptops. It's shockingly tiny in comparison to other notebook or desktop motherboards. There's also the inclusion of Intel's 1W display technology, dropping the … [Read more...] about Is HP Spectre Folio 13 battery life any good?

The revelation about the electric car battery’s re-igniting days after the crash was included in a safety memo written last month by Mountain View Fire Chief Juan Diaz, and first reported Wednesday by KTVU2. Thursday, Diaz told this newspaper that he initially wrote the safety memo April 5 to protect firefighters in his department when dealing with future electric vehicle fires. When neighboring departments contacted Mountain View regarding the Tesla crash for lessons learned, he shared the memo. “We talked about the challenges we faced,” Diaz said. “This is a high voltage … [Read more...] about Tesla battery reignited days after fiery crash in Mountain View

Extending the battery life of our tech is something that preoccupies manufacturers and consumers alike. With every new phone launch we're treated to new features, such as increasingly high-res displays and better cameras, but it’s longer battery life we all want.For most of us, being able to use our phone for a full day still means charging it every night, or lugging your charger around all day and hunting for a power socket. And when the electric car revolution reaches full speed, fast-charging, long-life batteries are going to be essential. Advances in battery life are being made all the time, even if we're yet to see the full benefits in our day-to-day gadgets. But what’s beyond that? Wireless power. And we don’t mean laying our phone on a charging pad – we’re talking about long-range wireless power. If this is cracked we could have all our devices at full juice all the time, no matter where we are.The current techThe batteries in your current … [Read more...] about The future of batteries, from human power to a wireless grid
Just a few months after Tesla completed the world's biggest lithium-ion battery installation outside of the Hornsdale wind farm in South Australia, the Australian state and the electric vehicle-slash-energy company look like they're ready to partner again. This time, South Australia wants to build a 250MW virtual power plant. The plant will consist of thousands of solar panels and batteries running software that decides when the batteries charge and discharge to maximize efficiency and value to the grid. The installation of these systems has already started, and the government of South Australia said installation would continue through 2018 to 2019. If the trial goes well, another 24,000 Housing Trust homes will be included in the virtual power plant (residents may opt out, however). If all goes well after the second phase of the rollout, another 25,000 private South Australian households will have the option to buy into the system. Installations at public housing will be provided at … [Read more...] about Tesla and South Australia at it again, this time building a virtual power plant
