I've been wondering how they are going to improve the tech to make electric vehicles more usable. This is a great next step.

Highlights from the article:

“Imagine an electric car that charges in the same time it takes to fill a car with gas,” said chemist Franz M. Geiger, who led the research. “And better yet — imagine an electric car that uses hydrogen as fuel, not fossil fuels or ethanol, and not electricity from the power grid, to charge a battery. Our surprising discovery provides an electrochemical mechanism that could make these things possible one day.”
