Re: Why battery makers keep us in the Dark Ages

The basic fallacy in your argument is in that there is no monopoly in battery manufacturing .

To the contrary there are several large companiies that all try their best to dominate the market. So if there was an easy way to make a battery that is much better than what we have ,it would be on sale already.

The same for camera manufacturers , the first to have a battery that last 5 or 10 times longer would have a large advantage over their competitors.

In fact, for one, Panasonic is heavily into battery manufacturing. That was a major reason for buying Sanyo. They would be their own customer with cameras and gadgets that could make use of them. So why don't they do it ?
