Recharging Batteries in Seconds

What if you could recharge your dead cell phone battery in just a few seconds? It may be possible, thanks to some Course 3 (Materials Science and Engineering) researchers at MIT. We haven't seen any major breakthroughs in battery technology over the last decade. It's time we see a major improvement in rechargeable batteries.

Rechargeable batteries are also critical in the world of healthcare. Think about all those implanted cardiac defibrillators that rely on a tiny battery. Plus, other cardiac monitoring devices may use rechargeable batteries. As mobile computers like UMPCs become more commonplace in the medical arena, these devices rely on improved battery life.
