So not only charges that could last up to a week ("...to have ten times as much capacity as they do today") but also shorter charging time ("...can speed up the battery's charging time up to ten times")! I say WOW! Hope this thing becomes commercially viable!

People , the problem is sadly easy to solve but companies are not allowed to , its not a mobile phones problem , if the battery of the phone becomes so powerful , other industries would use it , oil companies and countries would be heavily affected , many powerful people would be affected too , the technology is out there , but dont expect before 50 or 60 years (when oil reaches its last stage in reserves)
