      In order to feed a larger screen and a hungry 4G LTE chip, it's not surprising.

      I doubt they're using anything "ground breaking" as far as battery technology goes, because there really isn't anything new in the field right now.

      As a casual RC car hobbyist, I can tell you that those guys put some incredible demand on batteries and try know ALL about battery technology. Other than LiPo (Lithium Polymer), there's been nothing of note develop in battery technology in the past 5-7 years.

      Apple could make that happen if they dumped a ton of money into the field, but why bother when it would ultimately benefit every other phone/tablet/computer manufacturer (ie all their competitors) in the end. As good as Apples patent lawyers are, there's only so much they can protect.
