LG Hexagonal Battery

The single biggest challenge facing small devices such as smartwatches is that they often won't last a full 24 hours between charging. For many people (including myself) this is a deal breaker. LG reportedly has developed a hexagonal battery specifically designed for wearable tech such as smartwatches. The new battery is said to increase smartwatch battery life by up to 25%. That may not sound like a huge improvement, but it's a technology that we will be seeing more of in the very near future.
