The EETimes broke a story that the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) revealing a recharge rate "as little as 10 seconds) instead of six minutes or more per cell."

Now am I challenged in my perception of time or is that faster than I can pump gas into a car?

The simple story on how they got a 36 X improvement to achieve virutally instant re-charging is they discovered that the chemical lithium iron phosphate mostly worked at the surface level.

So they created tunnels to create more surface. ;-)

The report does not mention any reduction in the weight. And it makes sense to me that if you have removed material to create tunnels, you are carrying less weight.

The EETimes contiuned with durablity compartable to bulk material in testing so far.

An additional benefit is all this ‘tunnelling' allow for more energy to be deliver out of  the battery. Enough juice can be had to deliver performance on a par with gas engines.
