Nanotubes powering battery revolution

Abstract:
Charging the batteries of portable electronic devices takes time. In today's always-on-the-go world, time is a luxury that we sometimes don't have. Sometimes, you just have to go without your iPod or mobile phone or laptop while you wait for it to charge back up.

Some folks at MIT are working on updating past technology to fit current needs. They are pursuing the use of capacitors as chargers. These capacitors attach two metal electrodes together, creating an electric field of charged particles. The energy emanating from that field could be used to charge batteries in no time at all. Further, the batteries would hold more of a charge than normal, perhaps years.
