I believe that this is based on the same Nature article that this thread is:

viewtopic.php?p=10411&t=1011#p10411

The consensus was I think that

1) this isn't all that much of a breakthrough; we already have C12 capable batteries (but maybe can't charge that fast, only discharge)
2) Even at C12, you need massive current (for EV size batteries) to charge in 5 minutes, let alone 18 seconds
3) It's only been demonstrated with tiny batteries so far.

Hi all,
Here's another article regarding the US and EV's. Check the link to Obama's policy.
Talk about starting at the heavy end of the spectrum (converting a humma). They still have a long way to go to catch the Chinease!
