Hope for electric cars

This week, Toshiba claims to have a battery that will recharge 90% in a mere 5 minutes. That is a reasonable to wait while your car 'refills' (as opposed to being stranded for hours). If they can also get good energy density, power density, and safety at the same time, electric cars could be interesting.

Safety is not unimportant. You may remember a series of notebook PC battery fires. You wouldn't want that to happen to your car ... particularly when you were in it.
