10-second Phone Charge?

Scientists have jsut invented a phone batery that can charge in just 10 seconds. The device charges 100 times as fast as a conventional battery, and could be used in phones, laptops, ipods, and cameras within 2-3 years.

The same technology could even allow an electric car to be charged up in the same time that it takes to fill a conventional car with petrol - removing one of the biggest obstacles to green, clean motoring.

The quick-charge battery is the brainchild of engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The MIT team say their invention uses materials already available to battery manufacturers and would be simple to mass produce.
The invention is based on conventional lithium ion rechargeable batteries.
