Apparently,researchers at "university of illinois" have found a way to do this using nano-technology.Here is an excerpt from their article published in "The Nature"
Here, we demonstrate very large battery charge and discharge rates with minimal capacity loss by using cathodes made from a self-assembled three-dimensional bicontinuous nanoarchitecture consisting of an electrolytically active material sandwiched between rapid ion and electron transport pathways.They reached upto 400C-1000C(1C means complete charge-discharge cycle of one hour).So this means in theory at least that a Li+ battery can be made which can be charged 90% within 2 minutes!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is an amazing development-not only in the laptop/mobile/pad industry but also in the health industry.For example think about defibrillators-which takes years to charge(!) when its necessary.This could revolutionise our approach towards the patient completely.Lets hope for the best and lets see when this technology will be commercially available!
