Goodbye charging times?

Tired of your cell phone battery dying after a few hours?
It is said  that you soon can charge them in less than 30 seconds.
Researchers have developed new "superbatteries" which is 100 times faster than the ones we have today. 

It's usually one day, then the batteries in todays smartphones are dead. And it's not a long time until the long charging times could be history. Researchers at the University of Illinois have for the first time succeded to create a new kind of electrode in a so called lithium-ion battery, says the swedish newssite Nyteknik.se. And the result is most effective to say the least. By using a tridimensional foam made out of lithium treated manganese oxide, with lower temperatures than normally, the moveability of the electrodes and ions increase. 
 
Are you following? Relax. The reaserchers results pretty much means that you will be able to charge a phone in 30 seconds or charge a laptop in a couple of minutes. If or when the batteries will be commercialized is yet to be seen.

Seems pretty sweet if you ask me. No waiting times :)

  5. Been reading a lot of articles about battery life increasing. I say within the next few years our cell phone's (and other electronics) battery life will improve dramatically.

  9. It would be sick if they come out with a charging pad where I just throw all my electronics on there and in a minute they are all charged and I can go to work! 3 cheers for the future!
