You may have read our recent post, “Hot Swap Batteries with Lenovo ThinkPad Ultrabooks“, about new Lenovo Ultrabooks with hot swappable batteries.
Hot swap batteries, hot swappable batteries, hot swapping batteries all mean the same thing, swapping batteries out whilst the laptop stays powered and in use. Manufacturers are always trying to improve functionality, speed and the one major hurdle they face is power. Fancy new graphics, super fast processors and multitude of other features are all invariably power hungry. It will leave you searching for a power socket. Power management software and other similar features try to help prolong the laptop battery power. However, having hot swap battery feature is a major achievement in laptops and ultrabooks.
Hot swapping is a feature where components can be removed and/or added without interruption to the system. This feature may be new to laptops, but it has been a critical feature in servers. Hard drives, optical drives and even power supplies are hot swappable in servers. When one of these develops a fault, these are swapped out without powering down the server. Now Panasonic Toughbook laptops also feature hot swappable batteries. ToughBook models CF-C1 and CF-C2 have hot swappable batteries and in the case of CF-C1 model it goes further by having 2 hot swappable batteries.
Both the Lenovo Ultrabook and the Panasonic Toughbook have a smaller internal battery which keeps the laptop powered when swapping out the main battery pack. This feature will be crucial for business and mobile users. Especially ideal for those who cannot stand the in-flight entertainment provided by airlines and much prefer to take their own laptop or ultrabook. Hopefully, this feature will be adopted by all manufacturers and will be available on all models and not just for the business users. The search for the power socket will be a thing of the past and no embarrassing shut downs during that important meeting/presentation. Just swap the spare laptop battery and carry on. This will be an ideal feature for smartphones as well. All you need is a few spare smartphone batteries and you will never have to switch off your smartphone again. Except, perhaps when you update the software.

Lenovo’s latest ultrabooks, the ThinkPad T440 and T440s allows batteries to be swapped out without completely powering it down. These ultrabooks have two batteries, one built-in and another removable. So, you can safely swap this battery to another which is fully charged. The new Power Bridge technology allows the ultrabook to run on the built-in battery when the external battery is removed. These are 3 cell Lithium-ion batteries and according to Lenovo, the 3 cell battery is capable of achieving 6 hours run-time. This depends on the usage of the laptop. Factors like screen brightness, active applications and power management settings all have an impact on the battery life.
However, there is a 6 cell version of the removable battery which could boost the battery life to a whopping 17 hours. Perfect for most long-haul flights and even the longest board meetings. The latest, 4th generation Intel Core processors (Haswell) are a critical component in achieving this performance.
There is no word yet on when this is due to be released in Europe. If you don’t want to upgrade and want to get the most out of your current laptop, then you can always consider getting a spare laptop battery.

Duracell’s “The Return”, ad campaign, also known as “Some Toys Never Die” has won a number of awards at SPH iink Awards 2013 in Singapore. Two of the ads won Gold in different categories and the creative agency behind the campaign, The Grey Group, won the Grand Prix award and was also named the iink Creative Agency of the Year. Congratulations to the Grey Group, Singapore.
Toys powered by Duracell batteries, return. They never seem to die.
The Guardian is running a competition in association with Duracell and the Duracell Power Me campaign. There is one Canon PowerShot SX260 HS digital compact camera up for grabs! The Power ME campaign by Duracell is all about supporting people with their new goals and life ambitions. Check out all the fun, adventurous and gruelling challenges by people at Duracell’s Facebook page.
The PowerShot SX260 HS compact digital camera from Canon seems to best suited to capture those important moments. Especially if you are taking part in a challenge yourself.
The camera boasts a 12.1 megapixel sensor, GPS tagging & journey logs, full HD movie capture and 20x superzoom with ultra wide angle lens.
It’s worth carrying a spare Canon NB-6L battery, instead of missing out at the crucial moment.
We have all been there, carrying on a conversation or sending and receiving text messages (SMS) without realising the power left in the smartphone’s battery. Just before you can complete the conversation or message, the smartphone stops working. Especially annoying if you were giving directions or something else equally important!

Intel’s latest processors, the 4th generation Core Haswell are supposed to offer significant performance benefits including an improved battery life. Laptops and Ultrabooks have come forward in leaps and bounds in terms of performance and portability only to be held back by battery life. This seems to be the ‘holy grail’ for laptop manufacturers. Consumers, especially business users prefer longer run-times instead of having to plug-in all the time. The higher specification hardware certainly needs to be powered well to use it effectively. The latest Haswell processors in models like the HP Envy TouchSmart, like the one pictured, are boasting over 6 hours battery life. The Ultrabook status for a laptop has to meet some stringent criteria in terms of battery performance. A laptop should be able to play HD video for over six hours without the battery being recharged.
Unfortunately, older HP laptops do not have this advanced power efficient processor. Unless you are planning to upgrade you can always consider getting a spare HP laptop battery. Carrying a second laptop battery ensures that you are not going to run of power when you are travelling or when you are not near a plug socket.
You may have got the latest toy, but the old one that was thrown away has come back. Just like the Duracell Bunny, toys powered by Duracell batteries also lasts longer.

Absolute Radio is running a competition to celebrate the release of The World’s End movie. This should be another belly full of laughs from the dynamic duo, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. If you are a fan of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz then The World’s End is a must.
Absolute Radio are going to be a giving away an Apple iPad Mini, a Duracell torch, pack of 4 Cornetto ice creams and £100 iTunes vouchers. The high power Duracell Voyager Xenon torch has the following features:
Are you ready for your summer holidays? Booked flights and hotel or is it going to be a “staycation”? Can’t contain your excitement and counting down the days/hours to the holiday?
More importantly, have you got all your essentials? Holiday clothes, travel money, essential reading etc. Don’t forget batteries, chargers and memory cards. These are easily forgotten. The last thing you want is to be stuck in a beautiful location with camera in hand, but with an empty battery. Worse still with a memory card full of images that you forgot to transfer over and did not really want to delete in the first place.
Avoid disappointment and grab your power essentials from Duracell Direct before travelling.
SDXC is the newest standard for SD memory cards. It supports storage capacities from 32GB – 2TB! Some of the newest digital cameras and camcorders support the SDXC standard. Apart from the extended storage capacity it also benefits from higher speeds, for faster capture and retrieval of data. There are two Ultra High Speed classes, UHS I and II. UHS-I supports 50MB/s – 104MB/s and UHS-II supports 156MB/s – 312MB/s.
With all the different standards it can be confusing, and the question in everyone’s minds is, what will work in my camera or camcorder? The answer is, always use the correct memory card standard supported by your device or recommended by the manufacturer. SDXC memory cards work in devices that support SDXC format. SDHC memory cards will work in devices designed for SDHC and also SDXC format. SD memory cards will work in all SD formats. If you have an older device which supports SD memory card, then your choice is limited to SD only. Even though, newer devices can still use the older SD standards you cannot enjoy the benefits of extended capacity and high speed.
Smartphones are always in the news these days like new product launches, leaks about forthcoming models, reviews and comparisons. Recently, there have been a lot of coverage on smartphone battery life. You may have read our previous posts, “How to Maximize your Smartphone’s Battery Life?” or “How to Maximize your Android phone’s Battery Life?”. It seems that the following points needs to be considered as well:
1. Keep cool – warm phone/battery results in the battery to deplete faster and overall the maximum capacity of the battery is reduced.
2. Don’t charge it to 100% – Yes, you read that correctly. Apparently, charging it to 80% and recharging it when it reaches about 40% is much better than fully charging it.
3. Using an app to manage/extend battery life – the app controls applications and connections depending on the phone’s state.
An alternative to those dire situations with an empty battery is the 3 hour portable USB charger, which is a battery itself. As long as your smartphone can be charged using a USB this will be an ideal accessory. Simply connect your smartphone to the USB charger to charge your smartphone battery. Extending the smartphone battery life to finish that conversation or complete that difficult level whilst on the move.

An actual flying bike! Researchers from the Czech Republic have come up with an electric bike that is able to fly. The prototype was able to successfully take off and land within the confines of an exhibition hall in Prague. It was remote controlled and a mannequin was used, presumably for safety reasons. The bike achieved a flight time of 5 minutes due to the small capacity of the batteries powering the fans mounted on the bike.
The researchers hope that future improvements in battery capacities would allow for a much longer flight.
Duracell Ultra Power batteries may not be suitable for this flying bike, but they can keep all your devices powered for a long time.
