Photo: The production batteryApril 22, 2009
Presenting for your pleasure the production Pandora battery; layered wafers of lithium in a ruffled German wrap, and the subtlest hint of rich creamery butter. The reason for the slightly ruffled look isn’t clear just yet, but we’ll be watching this space for answers and dutifully reporting back. Some say it contains chocolate. In any case, it’s a delicious pic and another step down the home straight.
Update: Scenester j.pickens has pointed out that soft wrappings similar to this are used on RC car/plane batteries. This allows the battery to expand and contract ever so slightly, which maximises the capacity. Still no official word on this, but it does make a lot of sense.
