With portable electronics so ubiquitous, we sure do need batteries these days. Unfortunately, there hasn't been a breakthrough in batteries to match other electronics. Until possibly now.

Ilika Technologies Ltd. (University of Southampton Science Park, Southampton U.K.) says they are on the track of a solid state Li-ion battery that charges six times faster than the liquid ones (think 15 minutes to recharge instead of 1-1/2 hours) with solid-state safety and twice the energy density.

Current prediction is for free standing batteries by the end of the decade. They cannot come soon enough for me.
