Producing the battery of the future on the cheap

Vyralize: Imagine being able to charge your cellphone in 1-3 minutes with enough energy to last for two or more days? It’s possible with a “supercapacitor”, but the base material has always been very expensive to manufacture…until now. (Hi-tech)

Wow, that is sick! Can't wait for this to available to consumers. Sick of my phone dying within a day.

This has been an issue for years.

So now phone manufacturers will triple phone power consumption so phones still only last one day.

Well there is still the issue of heat. As long as they don't put a fan in a phone, they'll be limited by it.

Tesla needs that tech, and all car industry.

If there are more advancements on this, we may see their stock go up considerably.

The new Boeing jet that relies on li-ion batteries for rudder power and can't get approval because of it could benefit from this tech.

Betting that we will somehow be screwed over by the government once this comes out, if we can charge electric cars so fast they will become much more popular..

Ive been saying this for too long. Battery tech is always behind compared to the advancment of smartphone and other mobile devices. They just don't seem to grow. I hope we finaly see true battery that can last days instead of hours. The biggest issues facing today for smart phones and mobile devices such as tablets and laptops are battery.

Lighter everything and anything that uses batteries.

Cant wait to see this technology being used in consumer electronics and vehicles. My question now is, what is the average life span of one for these batteries? This will probably be the deciding factor as to whether the technology is ready to be considered as an alternative to what is there now.
