NEC Develops 30-Second Recharge Battery

By on April 7, 2004, 6:45 PM
A few sites have been reporting on NEC's latest development, a battery that can be fully recharged in only 30 seconds. The 'organic radical battery' can take charges on a similar level to nickel-hydrogen cells used in many electronic devices.

[COLOR=#1951B9]The price will be around the same of nickel-hydrogen cell batteries, since it does not contain any expensive materials. NEC will first roll out the battery as a commercial computer emergency power source, later we will see hybrid gasoline/electric motors for cars, cell phones and just about anything else you would use a battery with.[/COLOR]

So PC users should be among the first to try the new technology although details on it are still pretty scarce.
