Very Fast Rechargable Batteries

I’ve been doing a fair amount of research trying to build an electric boat and have come to the conclusion that, for what I want to do (do multiday motoring trips), even regardless of price, technology just isn’t there yet. This is mostly because, using batteries, the discharge rate is much faster or atleast equal to the recharge rate. Which makes recharging take too long to ever be practical.

Well – looks like Toshiba might have come up with a solution. A battery that recharges in under a minute. Now, if they can make this work with larger batteries then this would solve one of the major road blocks to doing serious work with batteries.
