Toshiba May Release Super Fast Charging Laptop

"I have been following the rumors of a new Toshiba ultra-portable laptop with great interest. Not because it is super thin and light — what has me excited is the Super Charge Ion Battery (SCiB) it’s reported to use. This is significant as these batteries supposedly can be 90% charged in a mere 10 minutes. Think about that for a moment. If you could charge your notebook battery in 10 minutes it could change the way you work while mobile."

A laptop that could be charged in ten minutes is great. However, I think it could have some other consequences. First, it would probably encourage people to deep drain their batteries more, meaning that batteries will need to be replaced more often. Second, I am positive that people will complain that 10 minutes is still too long. That being said, I would really like to see this technology applied to cell phones. In my experience, I have seen friends and colleagues have their phones run out of power much more often.
