Rapid recharge batteries

0.3mm thick and recharges in 30 seconds

NEC has debuted some ultra-thin and flexible quick charging batteries named ORB, for Organic Radical Battery. Their 0.3mm thickness that allows them to be flexible, or the fact that they can be recharged in about 30 seconds. The organic radical materials inside the battery are in an “electrolyte-permeated gel state,” which is supposedly about halfway between a solid and a liquid. This helps ions make a smooth move (no, the other one), reducing resistance, allowing the batteries to charge faster. 1 square centimeter will give you about 1 miliwatt hour. That’s not enough to power your laptop!! it it is may be th efuture for electronic paper, wearable computers, and other such technologies stepping up to the plate in the coming decade.
