As Apple readies itself for the global launch of its latest iPhone 5, the world is abuzz with what new changes may or may not have taken place. Among the many leaks arising on the internet, one particular picture has caught the fancy of the world at the moment. It is the image of the iPhone 5 battery.
While the picture that came online shows just a slim battery with many markings on it, the talk is not of its shape, looks or its weight rather about its dimensions. It looks exactly like the Apple 4 and 4S iPhone batteries except that this one is much smaller in size.
If the myth about iPhone 5 batteries is to be believed, then it is rated at 1440 mAh, which is 10mAh more than the previous model, and should also have a better watt-hour rate than before. This means that it is better rated for performance and efficiency. However, what is more interesting is the fact that its voltage may have been changed. While most phones today operate at 3.7 Volts, the new iPhone is said to operate on 3.8 Volts, which should mean that it has a lot more juice to offer.
All these new information about the battery pack for iPhone 5 does make sense, since it will boast a larger display, an LTE 4G radio service ,and other features that together take up a lot of battery power.
However, this also provides a problem as in how can such small batteries handle so much of energy drainage. The Samsung Galaxy series are equipped with much more powerful batteries, because they require it. So, how can a meager 1500 mAh do so much? It seems that with any luck, the battery should perform as expected taking the iPhone 5 on launch to the top.
