A new report from The Associated Press and the Electronic Signal Processing Association finds that Americans have the lowest rates of battery life, even with high-powered electronic devices.
The report, which was released Tuesday, was released at a time when the nation’s top two batteries, the lithium-ion battery and the nickel-cadmium battery, are expected to be upgraded by 2040.
The report found that Americans use just 8.4 hours of electricity to charge an electronic battery.
That compares to more than 14 hours for a standard alkaline battery.
It’s the lowest battery life in the world, with about 7.5 hours of life, and the lowest in the United States since data was first compiled in 2003, according to the report.
The report did not provide an average battery life.
A high-power electric vehicle has a battery life of 20 to 30 hours.
That’s lower than other countries, including the United Kingdom and Germany, but the report also found that U.S. electric vehicles have higher average life than cars that are driven by Japanese and German automakers.
“In a world where many people can’t afford to pay more than $200 a month for electricity, many Americans will have to use their cellphones, tablets and other electronic devices to charge their phones, tablets, laptops, gaming consoles and other devices that are in use 24 hours a day,” said the AP report, based on data from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
In addition, the AP found that the average battery lasts just six days before needing a recharge.
While the U.K. and Germany average about 8 hours of battery lifetime, Americans averaged just 6.4.
The United States, by contrast, averages 18.3 hours.
The AP report was released on the same day that Samsung Electronics, the world’s largest battery maker, announced that it would reduce the size of the batteries in its flagship Galaxy Note 7 smartphone.
Samsung has said that the new phones have battery life that’s better than other smartphones.
The battery size reduction is the latest in a string of moves by the smartphone giant to improve its battery life by 2035.
Samsung said in August that it will offer more batteries with larger capacity and smaller cells, but has not specified the new sizes.
Despite the reductions in the size and capacity of batteries, battery life remains a problem.
According to the AP, the average life of a typical cell phone is 8.3 days, but that’s down from the 9.1 days for the average cell phone in the 1970s.
