I wish that batteries would improve, especially for cell phones.
It feels like every successive new model of the major smartphones available are constantly maxing out limits of what current battery technology can achieve.
As soon as they get a better battery that lasts longer, the phone engineers utilize the additional capacity and then your phone has the same battery performance as the previous one. I realize that there is a tradeoff between features and battery performance. That’s why my Chromebook has a 10 hour battery life, as it runs as a lite-version of a normal laptop. Since I just need it for internet and typing, it’s a phenomenal machine for how cheap it was. Cannabis vaporizer pens are similar when it comes to batteries. A basic oil cartridge can run on a pen battery without much trouble. It only needs two to four volts of electricity to get a good vaporized hit of cannabis oil. However, dab pens need more watts because the concentrate needs to be decarboxylated first, which requires more power. And to get a strong and dense vapor, you’re also going to need more watts. That’s why you see those massive looking batteries for the vaporizer atomizers that can handle concentrates like bubble hash and live rosin. The cannabis cartridge products are easy enough to run on the cheap batteries as long as you match them with a battery that will recognize them, otherwise they’re extremely finicky. That’s one reason I switched to dabbing cannabis concentrates and quit buying cannabis vaporizer cartridges. My sister prefers the pre-filled cartridges because they already have the cannabis oil ready to go, making it much easier than dabbing.
