    It always appears like new battery developments are on the horizon, but the horizon never seems to arrive. And that announcement of a paper battery that charges in one minute and will last for 10,000 cycles seems a bit over the top to me.

    Based on research from Stanford and published in Nature - which means it's legit. Viability of commercialization is an open question.

    From my perspective, if it never becomes a consumer product that I can buy and use, I don't care how great it is.

    Fair enough. If it's promising and could become commercially available then I care. Actually, even if it's just lab research I care because if nobody cares until something is on the market it will never get made in the first place.
