Texas Instruments has announced two new chips that will make LED flashes brighter. The chips increase the brightness of LED flashes by increasing the power supplied to the LEDs. One chip increases the power to 800 milliamps while the other increases it to 1 amp. The increased power output is converted into more light. TI has said the chips will be available for manufacturers to build into their handsets within 4 to 6 weeks.

Is this really what we need?

I don't know how many of you go out to bars in NYC, but there is an amazing problem with people using those crazy bright camera phone flashes. In a dark bar they really are blinding - and it isn't just for a second. They stay on while the user lines up the shot etc. I can't believe these things are going to get even brighter. At least it sounds like the battery will die more quickly.

Does anyone else hate these camera phones with flashes?
