  • New Lithium Ion Technology around the corner?

    I was talking with my brother last night and he said he saw something on the news about some new Lithium Ion battery technology that allows batteries to be charged in mere seconds, literally.

    I then just did a quick search for new LIthium Ion Technology and found a few sites that posted developments that could/will seem to drastically improve these batteries from their current state either in charging quickness, or battery discharge rate, capacity, etc.

    The just of it is I can only imagine what is in store around the corner for cordless power tools if they can bring some of these lithium ion battery developments out. They are already talking about using them for hybrid cars to excellent advantage.

    I'm curious what you've heard?

    There are some gimmick items already available on the market. They use Flashcell technology that charges between 30-90 seconds. Coleman being one of those.

    A123 has certain Lion cells that can charge in 5 minutes. If they do develop faster charging for commercial use, that would be awesome!
