As the iPhone battery case is released and external battery packs are now a customary tech accessory, Walt and Nilay stop and think about the current status of phone and device batteries. Why is there a struggle for better battery life and what is it doing to the future of technology?

We love your feedback and suggestions on how to make our show better and more fun — you can tweet to Walt at @waltmossberg and Nilay at @reckless. Come see us at CES! We will be recording a live episode on The Verge stage. And of course, we'd love it if you subscribed in iTunes (and here's the direct RSS feed, if you like), along with The Verge's other great podcasts like Verge ESP, What's Tech, and The Vergecast.
