    Sounds cool. Can't recall if this is the first time I've ever heard mention of nanotech actually being applied to something in the real world as opposed to something in an article discussing the field of nanotechnology.

    Interesting... especially since my company has been working on hybrid applications for Mack/Volvo Trucks.

    Here's another potential improvement in battery technology:
    New Scientist: Charge a battery in just six minutes

    A rechargeable battery that can be fully charged in just 6 minutes, lasts 10 times as long as today's rechargeables and can provide bursts of electricity up to three times more powerful is showing promise in a Nevada lab.
    Poor battery technology has been holding back portable electronics, hybrid and electric cars, renewable energy and small scale power systems (especially needed in many parts of the developing world) so let's hope these press releases are matched by real-world products.

    Ditto that. I'd love to see a set of recharables that can outlast the current stuff.

    Yeah, I'd like to see laptop bettery life go up to about 24 hours on a single charge, or atleast recharge super fast.
