A new era has started - by batteries

“Battery technology has improved over the past decade, but now scientists claim they have made a giant leap in power storage, giving lithium-ion batteries 30 times more power and the ability to recharge 1,000 times faster “than competing technologies.” This is a battery breakthrough that could change the world — it’s “a whole new way to think about batteries,” according to its creators”

Imagine a battery so powerful, that it can jumpstart your car. Imagine your smartphone to work day and night for a whole month. That is what the near future could bring, if this new kind of batteries will become available soon. Best of all – if its empty – it could recharge within minutes.

Imagine the implications for electric cars, for the availability of electricity in the developing world. Is it unfair to say, this could change the world. We’ll see.
