I am no technology genius by any stretch. I think tech advancements are very cool especially when they improve efficiency and are environmentally sound. Well here is another technology that will benefit anyone who has ever needed batteries for their gadgets.

A group at M.I.T. is rethinking a 300 year old technology and it seems that the revamped version of capacitors which they are developing could put an end to batteries as we know them. That’s right, no more chucking out your old batteries which will eventually leak harmful chemicals into the environment.

These new capacitors have the ability to recharge in seconds (unlike batteries that take hours and eventually will no longer hold a charge). According to the team working on this, it will most likely be a few years before we see these capacitor batteries on the market, but from the looks of it, it will be worth it in the end.
