Apple Battery Charger - batteries last 10 years?
Well I just ordered a couple chargers for our iMacs. My Magic Mouse gets through a couple of Duracell AA batteries per week.
Would be better if this worked off USB - I have plenty of free USB ports, but not many power points!
It would take much much longer to charge.
NiMH is many times simpler (no voltage control), more stable technology and last much longer (10 years is the industry standard) than Li-ion but does have disadvantages like excessive "leakage" and less power per mass/size.
Not much leakage anymore with LSD (Low Self Discharge) batteries. Based on the description on Apple website (retain 80% capacity after 1 year), they are rated exactly like Sanyo Eneloop batteries (rebadged?).
Guess no one will really know until 10 years from now, until then it sure sounds good in marketing materials!
