Will a smartphone battery charge itself one day?

A growing number of reports are indicating that companies – including Motorola Solutions – are working on it.

Because of the broad scale dependence that much of the population has on their mobile devices, when a smartphone battery dies, it can cause people to experience anything from a slight frustration to a large amount of panic.

Companies are now starting to come up with new strategies to make sure mobile device batteries stay charged.

While a considerable amount of this effort is being focused on developing a slimmer, lighter and more powerful smartphone battery, others are working on the challenge of creating devices that don’t need as much power in order to run all the features a user wants for his or her everyday life. Consumers, themselves, have been doing what they can to get the most battery life from their devices, including dumping power draining apps and bloat-ware, when they can, and reducing certain activities – such as streaming video – when they’re on their last bar of battery.

However, some efforts are now focusing on unique strategies such as a self-charging smartphone battery.

Smartphone Battery - Self-ChargeWhile there may be more than one company working on such an effort, Motorola Solutions has found itself in the spotlight for just this reason. At the time of the writing of this article, the claims have only been as official as a rumor, but they are starting to appear in a growing number of places and are pointing to the company’s efforts with increasing detail. It is important to note that it is Motorola Solutions and not Motorola Mobility that has been identified as a part of this development.

Motorola Solutions is the result of a 2011 division of Motorola (the other half being Motorola Mobility). The Mobility side is the Moto and Droid side of the business and is also behind the Moto 360 wearable technology. On the other hand, the Solutions side of the company provides public safety equipment (such as police scanners and radios) and network solutions. Essentially, Mobility is the consumer electronics side, while Solutions is the public side. Solutions, unlike Mobility, was not sold to Google and then Lenovo as was the case with Mobility.

While this type of automatically recharging smartphone battery may seem to have appeal, it is still in a rumor phase and is far from the market. Until then, we will need to continue with careful power saving strategies and good quality external battery charger products.

Mobile technology takes a step forward thanks to Motorola Solutions

Smart phones are very popular among consumers but have also become very prominent tools for the business sector. Professionals from various fields make use of smart phones of all kinds on a daily basis. Indeed, the world is becoming more acclimated to doing business in the mobile space, which is increasing the focus several companies have on the smart phones that are used in daily operations. As businesses become more reliant on mobile technology, the capabilities of even the most advanced smart phones are proving too limited, at least by the standards of Motorola Solutions.

Company introduces new handheld computer

Motorola Solutions believes that a new generation of mobile device is in order; one that can better meet the needs of the professionals that have come to rely on mobile technology. The company has unveiled its MC45 mobile computer. The MC45 is a rugged handheld device that is significantly more advanced than conventional smart phones and tablets. The device is designed for field workers, but could have several uses for those in other industries of business.

MC45 built to last

The device incorporates the strengths of a conventional computer with the mobility of a smart phone. Motorola Solutions suggests that it could be used by small and medium-sized businesses to keep track of sales and inventory while also conducting numerous other operations as directed by its user. The MC45 is designed to withstand strong impacts, making it resilient in harsh environments. The device also boasts of a three-year lifecycle, while most consumer smart phones are designed to last a year or less.

Motorola Solutions looking to spark a new generation of mobile technology

Mobile technology has become a very important part of the business world and Motorola Solutions is working to introduce a new generation of mobile devices that could better serve the changing needs of businesses. Whether the MC45 will be able to replace the popular Android and iOS platforms that businesses have come to adore has yet to be seen, but Motorola Solutions has high hopes that the device will be able to fare well in a niche market.
