Breakthru Battery for Electric Cars

Charging as Quick as Pumping Gas Source:  University of Glasgow - Scottish Battery Tech New Supercharge Battery A team of scientists from the University of Glasgow in Scotland have developed a new battery technology that charges electric and hydrogen powered cars in seconds.  It could make these renewable, alternative energy vehicles real contenders. Nano-molecu les This battery breakthrough is a big deal because currently it takes hours to charge electric cars. The new Scottish system uses nano-molecules that allow energy to be stored and then outputted as electricity or hydrogen gas.  Both are emissions free. "Exotic Rust" According to the scientists, the secret ingredient in their battery breakthrough is "exotic rust".  It's a metal oxide that when added to water can be charged with electricity.  The battery is at the prototype stage. Fill-er-Up The new technology allows electric or hydrogen car refueling much the same as getting gas at a
