Bear in mind also that it is like lightbulbs. At the moment, battery manufacturers are still trying to make batteries they know will last. If they understood the batteries properly, they would design them to last for as long as the warranty and no longer.

There is no future to be made in making a commodity that will last forever - you will go out of business.
