Forbes has this interesting piece about a new battery material that could help recharge conventional rechargeable batteries 100 times as fast. This would mean reducing charging times significantly for any product that needs recharging - or, much faster times to recharge your electric car or motorcycle and bring the times closer to filling a tank up. The developers feel that this technology could be available as early as 2011.
I say Bring it On! Let's show fossil fuels the fist asap! And, most importantly, congratulations!
