There are much better batteries and battery technology out there than lithium.Soon, every grunt will be carrying a 30 lb Lithium deep-cycle marine battery on his back, to power all of his individual equipment.

Back in the last century, everything electronic that the Army had used proprietary batteries. Without a steady supply of them, the device was difficult to use.You'd think with electronics we would integrate a 'kill switch', so if it got into enemy hands we could shut it down. Something where once every few weeks it needs to 'connect home' to get a renewed lease on life. That way you avoid that it gets accidentally cut off during a mission, but if we lose it, it does not work for long.
