    Compare to traditional Li-ion, Li-Po is lighter and more durable

    Thought those who worried about long term battery life might be interested to know. I attached a picture for evidence.

    LiPo batteries can be recharged many many MANY times more than the traditional batteries before they start losing their capacity.

    In practice this means that the current Lumia line won't be losing their battery capacity over time.

    It's all the awesome sauce they pack inside it!

    This is actually wrong. LiPo actually have lower energy density and decreased cycle count compared to lithium-ion. I've been heavy into electric rc and battery science for ages. It's one of the few things I'm good at. lol.

    Oh. Well then. Are there any advantages to LiPo?

    Indeed there are. They don't require a hard case so they can be shaped a bit more and can be a bit lighter. Also, in a cell I would think the differences would be little as far as recharging goes.

    So with the lower energy density, a 2000mAh LiPo battery would be physically larger than a 2000mAh Li-ion battery?

    Is it a significant difference?

    Nope. Not in such a small battery.

    So it seems that the advantages are mainly weight and form factor but in terms of battery life they're the same? Big woop ; ; I was hoping for something better :dry

    I thought LiPo meant this:

    Lithium iron phosphate battery - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I messed up polymer and phosphate in my head.

    Still 185 grams makes this quite a brick.
