Extending battery lifetime is an important issue for mobile devices. While extensive attempts have been made at the software level, optimization often risks hampering user experience. One fundamental method to increase battery lifetime is to improve the efficiency of the battery itself. We argue that the multi-cell battery system, which is widely used for enhancing battery efficiency in the electric vehicle (EV) field, can solve this issue. However, due to the hardware constraints and device… CONTINUE READING
