Wow! This is incredible. This is world changing unless I misunderstood the implications. Put this tech. in your electric car it will drive like a gas powered vehicle and recharge in minutes. In five years, if this works, the world will be different.

The problem with recharge in minutes is the current required to do it. Massive. A recharge station to replace a petrol station would need a huge inward capacity to charge more than one vehicle at a time. The drain on the grid would be huge. Nothing insurmountable, but a issue that doesn't get enough discussion.

use supercapacitors, and batteries, together, in a bullet belt configuration,

The gas station can slowly charge cells, and then you feed new cells in and pull old cells out,

the supercapacitors could then actually absorb all breaking energy without exploding like a conventional battery,
