Quote of the Day: Energy Density.

Seen on Instapundit today commenting about the Achilles heel of Smartphones:

Batteries don’t follow Moore’s Law.

UPDATE: Reader Matt Andrade writes: “If Batteries followed Moore’s Law, by now my MacBook Pro, fully charged, would be able to power my house.”

Also if Batteries followed Moore's Law Electric Cars would not only be viable they'd be beating the pants off gasoline cars by providing far, far more range for the same volume and weight.

Heck if batteries followed Moore's Law there would be hundreds of uses for batteries at that level of energy density.
