Hi all,

I don't know about other people but I feel recharging my Z twice a week is way too often. If energy storage progressed as quickly as information storage I'd be running on one charge for 3 months with heavy usage, and that's what I would consider optimal.

Alas, it seems a lot of time is yet to pass before I put a 100% environmentally friendly Plutonium cartridge into my PDA, and so every bit of news about new battery technology is to me like a juicy stem of cactus to a poor soul lost in the desert. As it happens, another such gem has surfaced on the net.

The culprit is Hitachi, and apparently their AA format fuel cell will eventually manage to power a PDA for six to eight hours. Not much but it's a start!
