When was the last time you heard about the latest technology breakthrough in your car battery? A year ago? 3 years ago? 10? 

How about NEVER? Unless we are talkaing about electric vehicle batteries, which are evolving quickly (and have no effect in non-electric cars). It just hasn't happened. 

Until now. 

A new company, Ohm has developed a lighter and smarter battery that will fit into your existing car. 

This battery is actually really cool - it lasts about 2 times longer than your current battery, weighs less, and will turn itself off before it goes dead, so your car doesnt. 

Check out the full article here on Techcrunch and evene sign up to be a beta tester for the new battery!
