This is good Linky Toshiba has made a battery that recharges to 80% in 1 minute. It also has a long life loosing only 1% capacity after 1000 charge cycles. This is good news for cell phones/ipods/cameras/etc. It mentions hybrid cars, but batteries have had problems scaling before. Anywho, this is a cool technology that could help with those who forget to stick things on the charger at night.
