Toshiba has announced the release of it SCiB Batteries (Super Charge ion Batteries).
These batteries can be charged to 90% in 5 minutes and can be recharged more than 5,000 times. That is about 10 years of battery life.
The battery is going to be used in electric cars from March 2008. The battery will come as a boon to electric vehicle users as the charging time is very less.
Toshiba has used lithium titanate in the batteries so that they won’t explode or catch fire.
