Lithium-Ion breakthrough: A battery that charges as fast as a supercapacitor

Lithium-Iron-Phosphate particle 

Is this the "Holy Grail" Battery We've Been Waiting For? Nature published a very interesting paper by MIT researchers Byoungwoo Kang & Gerbrand Ceder this week: Battery materials for ultrafast charging and discharging. In it they claim that they have discovered a way to make a lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery charge and discharge about as fast as a supercapacitor...
