Batteries aren't something that can just be made, yes, companies are always looking for a way to make batteries last longer but keep in mind that mobile systems have always increasingly energy consumption needs as they grow more powerful.
Batteries take time to develop correctly and there are various technical and chemical and safety processes that must take place first, they aren't something you just make and plug in as you're dealing with electricity generating components and chemicals.
A rush developed battery can be a hazard to carry around not to mention that if a battery is used in something that it is not made for or not treated properly it can damage the component it is being used on, explode and hurt you badly or may even kill you.
