Mobile phone battery life will one day be 10 YEARS thanks to super-efficient chip
Technological advances can be a good thing. BUT, if this 10-year battery powered a cell phone bug that was placed discreetly in your office or conference room . . . how easy would it be for a spy to collect against your organization for a long, long time? The extended battery life would reduce or eliminate the risk of exposing the spy when they returned to your office or conference room to replace or recharge the battery. Ten years is a long time to be able to collect against you!
