If this report is true and there aren't too many drawbacks to the technology, personal electronics and computing are about to get a whole lot better. NEC says it has come up with a new type of battery, the organic radial battery, that only takes 30 seconds to recharge.
It takes only about 30 seconds to recharge the battery enough to allow 80 hours of continuous operation of an MD player, compared with around an hour needed by conventional rechargeables, the company claims.Costs for producing these things is supposed to be similar to nickel-hydrogen batteries.
Because of its ability to recharge faster, the new battery, which stores power in a special resin, is expected to make radio-controlled toy cars, shavers and other products much more convenient to use.
The battery can also discharge power in a short time, making it useful in applications requiring a large amount of power.
