Geek stuff, sci-fi... NEC has developed an ultra-thin, flexible, rechargeable battery capable of re-charging in just 30 seconds, the company said on Thursday. The new battery has been dubbed ORB, for Organic Redical Battery, by NEC, because it uses an organic radical polymer as its cathode.

You are very right that power capacity is major problem for todays batteries. But no where in the article or elsewhere does it say that this battery has a high capacity.

Nevertheless it is interesting that NEC can construct a new type of battery that is flexible and has fast recharge. This can be useful in some low power applications.
