    This looks very promising! Who doesn't want batteries that last forever?

    I think that's not possible. Maybe in the near future :)
    Sony should be a part of this "project". I believe Samsung can't do anything. :)

    So does this mean a charge would last indefinately or that the battery won't degrade but still have to be charged?

    I interpreted it as a much slower degradation rate

    Probably it will be like that. Battery can't last forever.

    Yes but it would be good if it lasted as long as the device it was installed in.

    I'm all for battery tech improvements regardless of who makes the breakthrough.

    Patent it, licence it, roll it out to the masses

    It's definitely not charge cycles in battery life for me I bought a really nice expensive ultra book laptop 2 years ago but maybe used it 5 times(impule buy) and I plugged it in to install Windows 10 and the battery stats at zero % and won't charge.

    It maybe has 5 charge cycles on it

    A lithium battery requires frequent charge cycles, 5 in 2years would definitely have it degrade significantly.
