Yeah Lithium ion life is very dependant on average temperature, age.

It's kind of surprising that it took this long to demonstrate that lithium ion is the superior choice.

My observation of lithium batteries is that a signficant portion of their wear out comes even without cycling. In other words, they have a independant time factor of degradation in addition to that associated with harsh use conditions.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
