MIT Battery Breakthrough

A group of researchers at MIT have discovered a new way to build a fast charging battery. Utilizing the new technology, a battery that used to take 6 minutes to charge now takes to to 20 seconds. The technology is also supposed to increase the number of usable discharge/recharge cycles and is hoped to be useful for deep cycle applications such as marine house batteries and solar storage.

Here is a report from the Australian site EnergyMatters.com.au. Wired also has a story.

Update: More information at New Scientist.
