A battery that charges 10x faster and last 10x longer

Scientists at the NorthWestern University in the USA have finally built and tested a prototype battery that has 10x greater battery life and charge 10x faster. If this battery passes FCC and hits the market, it could be an evolutionary change in battery technology.

How the scientists managed to do this is an interesting read as they did a "simple" thing of poking holes in the battery to improve it's life and performance. When they say holes, however, they mean that they drilled 20 nanometer holes in the Lithium-ion batteries. They also removed the sheets of material and insted changed it into clusters so that they can achieve greater lithium ion density.
