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.
