New battery charges in seconds

Gentleman, we can rebuild it. We have the technology. Better than it was before. Better, stronger, faster...
U.S. engineers have found a way to make lithium batteries that are smaller, lighter, longer lasting and capable of recharging in seconds.
This may have wide-ranging implications for everything from mobile phones to better electric car batteries. The process involves a new way of manufacturing the batteries that removes some of the limitations to Lithium ions, but it still uses the traditional battery materials.
"If manufacturers decide they want to go down this road, they could do this in a few years," Ceder said.
Note: Battery is not actually projected to cost 6 million dollars.
