Re-engineered battery material could lead to rapid recharging of many devices

Quote:
MIT engineers have created a kind of beltway that allows for the rapid transit of electrical energy through a well-known battery material, an advance that could usher in smaller, lighter batteries -- for cell phones and other devices -- that could recharge in seconds rather than hours.


The work could also allow for the quick recharging of batteries in electric cars, although that particular application would be limited by the amount of power available to a homeowner through the electric grid.


The work, led by Gerbrand Ceder, the Richard P. Simmons Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, is reported in the March 12 issue of Nature. Because the material involved is not new -- the researchers have simply changed the way they make it -- Ceder believes the work could make it into the marketplace within two to three years.

There will always be casualties with progress. They give their lives so that man might exist in a tidy, clutter free future

So you're saying it is justified to sacrifice individuals to save the majority?

Oh boy. Sounds Machiavellian to me....
