Solid-State Electrolyte Batteries
New and Improved
Samsung and MIT are working on a new solid state electrolyte battery. Their efforts have brought forth a new revolution in battery technology. With unstable batteries like lithium polymer batteries or "LiPos" having the potential to catch fire this new breakthrough has a lot to offer.
Their solid electrolyte is called a “superionic lithium-ion conductor,” composed of lithium, germanium, phosphorus, and sulfur. It makes their battery design better than standard batteries in all the ways that matter: Its lifespan can last for hundreds of thousands of charges, it stores more energy in the same amount of space, and it also addresses some safety concerns present with other batteries.

The bottom line here is that newer and safer batteries are in the future and that holds great promise for aerial videography as we will be able to fly longer and get much more life out of our batteries.
