Device manufacturers have come a long way in compensating for the operational designs by cutting power consumption down. But, the overall principle to keep selling batteries, is the same as the oil companies needing to keep selling oil.

In short, batteries fail. Extending usage on a charge does cut down on the amount of in between charging.

Consumers pay almost three times as much to have the batter...
