Rapid-charge li-ion battery project seeking crowdfunding, promises 100% charge in 16 minutes. This could be great news for EV batteries. FUND THEIR PROJECT!

I like the idea, but I'm still skeptical on the practicality of this type of technology as I highly suspect this type of rapid charging will have dramatic effects on the battery's overall peak capacity and lifetime. Hopefully I'm wrong though, since we still have a long way to go before EV's are able to break the technological barriers for wide spread adoption...
