Student's Antenna Tweak Leads to Vastly Improved Battery Life
Reception vs. Battery Life
I hope this works
12x times more battery life would be a big improvement for any 3g phone on the market. Especally with 4g right around the corner on Sprint's WiMax network.
Why, does WiMax draw 12x the battery po...
Kudos to This Person!
Good job and props!
Wouldn't there be extra radiation???
...just a thought...
Probably, but dying early is a part of cell phone ownership right?

This is a Wonderful advance
And the idea, has other applications including the blue tooth and other electronics. Not to mention the "James Bond" ideas this could help come to life...
I wish him well. Well done...
Good, not great
The student has reduced the power loss in the antenna/circuit board interface by 12x. The loss at this junction is just a fraction of the total power consumption of the device.
Power consumption is important, and every bit helps, so this sort of innovation is important, but it will be a much more incremental improvement than the article seems to suggest.
