Nanobatteries are fabricated batteries employing technology at the nanoscale, a scale of minuscule particles that measure less than 100 nanometers or 100x10-9 meters. In comparison, traditional Li-Ion technology uses active materials, such as cobalt-oxide, with particles that range in size between 5 and 20 micrometres. It is hoped that nano-engineering will improve many of the failings of present battery technology, such as re-charging time and battery 'memory'. Such technologies like a new Lithium-Ion battery with a nanostructured lattice at the cathode and anode that allowed the battery to recharge a surprising eighty times faster than previously. Prototype models were able to charge to eighty percent capacity in one minute, and one hundred percent recharged after 10 minutes.
