Creators of modern rechargeable batteries share Nobel prize

If you had to slip a couple AAs into your smartphone every morning to check your email, browse Instagram, and text your friends, chances are the mobile revolution would not have been quite so revolutionary. Fortunately the rechargeable lithium-ion battery was invented — a decades-long task for which three men have just been awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. The prize this year honors M. Stanley Whittingham, John Goodenough, and Akira Yoshino, all of whom contributed to the development of wha...

Yet another battery story

This isn’t really an amateur radio story, but it does have a battery in it, so it could be. :) About six months ago, I noticed that my battery-powered shaver wasn’t holding a charge as well as it used to. Recently, I’ve had to just use it with that AC adapter to shave down my beard properly. I cracked it open and found that it was powered by a single NiMH, AA cell, very much like the one shown in the photo. The  kicker is that it’s not a standard battery, but one with solder tabs. My first respo...

Learning about batteries

I often say that getting an amateur radio license is as much getting a license to learn as it is getting a license to operate on the amateur radio bands. Lately, I’ve been learning about batteries, LiPo batteries to be exact. It all started when I purchased a Morserino. The Morserino is a feature-packed Morse Code learning aid. In addition to helping you learn the characters, it’s also supposed to help you learn how to copy in your head. It has a built-in touch keyer function, and a LoRa interfa...
