"Sonata" Lithium Ion battery

Greetings,

I just heard a very interesting story on the radio, about a woman, Christina Lampe-Onnerud, who redesigned the "guts" of a typical lithium ion battery -- and it lasts much longer, charges faster, and greatly reduces the likelihood of overheating/bursting into flames! Her company's name is "Boston-Power", and their battery called the "Sonata" is in production, right now.

It charges in ~1/2 the time of regular batteries (80% in just 30 minutes!), and it lasts much longer, too.
