Here's how hydrogen could transform battery life on your portable gadgets
A phone that lasts a week on a single charge, anyone?
By ScienceAlert Staff

A British startup claims to have solved the perennial problem of smartphone battery life, and it’s used hydrogen to do it. Based on a prototype that Intelligent Energy has hooked up to a current iPhone 6, the new technology could mean a phone that lasts a week between charges rather than scraping through to the end of the day.

What makes the innovation particularly promising is that the new battery fits inside an iPhone 6 without any alterations in size or design - the only noticeable difference is a series of small vents on the back of the handset that allow small plumes of water to escape (a consequence of the controlled chemical reaction going on inside the battery). That water, together with a small amount of heat, are the only waste products from the new battery design.

Make yourself a priority. At the end of the day, you’re your longest commitment. In other words, go eat that doughnut you’ve been craving for a while. Start and finish those chemistry homeworks. Commit your entire being to better yourself. Your books are your best friend and your boyfriend. They will never leave you like some people do. 

 Trust me.

Let the records show that tonight marks an incredible discovery regarding the oxidation and reduction of one metal to another. This is simple chemistry but after successfully using hand brewed crystalline solutions to grow ACTUAL veins of solid copper on glass, this could be an amazing addition to my work, portfolio and alchemical narrative if I can successfully grow copper veins on foreign objects such as skulls and possibly insects. This technique requires no battery or cathode/ anodes to yield solid metal, as copper in the sludge like green solution freely takes the place of the aluminum foil to yield solid copper. Sorry for the 1AM mad scientist explosion, but I’m too damn excited about the possibilities this technique could yield. Not too mention it’s exactly what the medieval and hermetic alchemists were trying to attempt- turning one base metal into a more valuable one!
Updates to come!

So this is an update, in the second semester I switched AP classes I was taking history 1 and 2 and language and now I’m taking chemistry, physics and biology and its so much fun! I love it although organic chemistry it’s tricky. I recently took my cardiovascular system test and I got an A+ (is that the maximum note? I’m not from the USA) I’m really motivated bc I really want to study medicine

Hi guys! I want to ask for your help . I have a Physics project were I have to present an idea of “something” that doesnt exists and can help humanity and its actually possible to somehow create it, and Im blocked… it can be something that has to do with Chemistry, Physics, Biology, (and that kind of subjects) If you have an idea please send me a PM (private message) PLEASE, I KNOW THERE ARE A LOT OF VERY INTELLIGENT PEOPLE OUT THERE. Im begging pleeeeaaasssseeee -admin Scarlett Flame Haze

Do you believe it's easier for a biologist to go into chemistry or for a chemist to go into biology? I have a BSc in Biology and I'm currently doing my phd in a chemistry lab. There are soooo many times I wish I was a chemist, lol! Since you do the opposite, I would like to hear your thoughts on that!

I think it’s probably easier to be a chemist doing biology than a biologist doing chemistry, but I guess it depends on the person and the lab. Like there are a lot of chemistry labs doing biology that really are doing the same thing as biology labs, but there really aren’t any biology labs doing chemistry that I know of at least. 

Like anything, it’s a learning curve, although I tend to think that coming from a chemistry background and learning to do molecular biology or genetics is probably easier than the other way around because the theory isn’t as dense and doesn’t require as much outside knowledge of like math and physics, but that may be my bias showing so there’s that.

But part of if may also be the tendency to find things more interesting/enjoyable if you understand them well. For example, even though I’m in a biology program, I am working in a chemistry lab doing biophysics, which appeals to me in part because I have a more solid grounding in physical chemistry than molecular biology so it makes more intuitive sense to me.
