Yep! Right next to the hundreds of other power-saving energy alternatives that have been claimed as the next miracle in battery life, but have fallen short... Bit of a mouthful, don't you think?

 Would there be a way to replace a Li-ion battery with this? I'm tired of my 20 minute battery life.

300-500 recharges sounds a little lame to me.

I was thinking the same thing, but it really depends on how long the charge lasts. If you can get a week or two on a charge, your battery will probably outlast your phone. 300 weeks is what, 6 years?

 scale it back even, let say notbook with netbook charges. A gaming computer with 9 hour battery and 300 charges before replacing?
