I think someone / organization should set a New World Order / standard for batteries.
I have a C250 and the battery is starting to loose it’s life, now as anyone who owns a C250 or any electronics these days knows you can’t just go down to any store and buy a new battery ( most likely have to try Ebay). And that’s not right.
In the ~old~ days you had D, C, A, AA, AAA, AAAA, 9V, etc.
It would be nice if new standards in size, design and volts would be set for rechargeable batteries - that would cover EVERYTHING from Notebooks down to a C250 and or smaller.
And it’s not that hard, the standards (size, shape, volts, etc) would be set and manufacturers would design the item to accept whatever power supply(ies) would be required - just like the old days. And it would not matter what the ingredients of the battery would be Li-polymer, NiMh, etc.
The problem of course is that, it is in the electronics manufacturers best interest that you buy a new ‘what ever’ rather than just buying a new rechargeable power supply.
Still it would be nice to have new standards for rechargeable power supplies for the future. Instead of having these electronics manufacturers REINVENT the wheel EACH and EVERY time! Then you could just go to any store and pickup those batteries!
