Toshiba unveils new battery prototype

Toshiba has unveiled a battery prototype that offers a 90 percent charge capacity in just 10 minutes.

The Super Charge Ion Battery (SCIB) is capable of handling 5,000 to 6,000 recharge cycles, compared to the typical 500 offered by standard lithium-ion batteries.

The new battery is composed of a durable material that offers a high level of thermal stability and prevents overheating. In addition, the unit will not explode when crushed.

According to Toshiharu Watanabe of Toshiba, the "excellent performance of the SCIB will assure its successful application in industrial systems and in the electronic vehicles markets as a new energy solution".

Indeed, the long-awaited Schwinn Tailwind electric bicycle will reportedly feature a SCIB battery that charges in less than 30 minutes.
