Flexible Battery Charges in a Minute, Lasts for 1,000 Recharges

Scientists at Japan's Waseda University have developed a new new polymer-based battery, which not only charges in less than a minute, but also lasts for up to 1,000 recharges. The cool thing about the superthin (200nm-thick to be exact) battery is that unlike previous polymer-based batteries, this one won't won't self-discharge. All we need to do now is get it inside our favorite kit.
