Toshiba's new battery gets charged in 60 seconds

Toshiba battery

You still won't get more than few hours of battery life out of it (and it'll still probably run out of juice at exactly the wrong moment), but Toshiba's just introduced a new Lithium-Ion battery that can be recharged (up to 80% capacity) in a mere 60 seconds (it has something or other to do with "nano-particles"). Should start showing up in gadgets sometime next year.
