I just saw this news story about a new Samsung cell phone with a removable battery about to hit the market. I certainly hope this is the start of things to come.
I do not like that one can no longer easily replace a phone or laptop battery. Until I got my current Chromebook laptops, I never even installed the battery in any laptop I have ever owned. I only run them when I can plug them directly into a power plug.
Now, I no longer have that choice, as all laptops sold now have the battery sealed inside.
Anyway - interesting to see this return, if only on 1 product:
