    I'd love to see some manufacturers integrate some of this stuff into their designs when it becomes available :)

    Just a few calculations, based on battery charge time of 4 hours.

    6 minutes = 360 seconds / 20 seconds = 18 (times faster charging with the new technology).

    4 hours = 14400 seconds / 18 = 800 seconds / 60 seconds = 13.33333... minutes.

    So this would mean instead of charging our batteries for 4 hours, it would take just over 13 minutes...

    I should add that I have a tendency to totally mess up calculations, so can someone confirm this for me?

    All I know is that my EVO batteries already charge in 15 minutes...

    And they last 10 hours :D

    Very true. Not only that (I get about 8 hrs but vape more than I breathe) but unlike other batteries they don't fade. They keep going at the same steady excellence 'til they're done, when they flash "goodbye" and stop completely. This makes them the perfect "out and about" e-cig imho.

    Fast charging lithium batteries are already on the market (at least for industrial,transport applications) . Just Google "Toshiba scib".
