Don't Hold Your Breath

Batteries of the future to charge in seconds?: Digital Photography Review

Way cool, but....

This story reminds me of the stories about everlasting automobile engines back in the sixties. This was before there were many Japanese vehicles around to demonstrate that cars really could last more than two or three years without having to cost a bazillion dollars. I'm surprised Everready or Duracell haven't snapped up the patents for immediate burial already. Eliminating the need to replace batteries would cut the world's mercury and other heavy metal pollution rate considerably. I hope this shows up in the real world quickly, but past experience dictates breathing normally until that day arrives.
