I got no clue what the graph is showing... Lol, but how much longer is it...
I don't see how this technology would ever lead to larger capacities. The capacity of a battery is directly related to the physical components inside of it. That's not to say that building better batteries is impossible, but it's quite difficult to build a better battery at prices that won't break the bank.
Batteries are one of those things that normally requires a medium change to become more effective. The problem is that the better medium normally cost a fairly good chunk of change more.
As for the chart, it shows he charging time and how increasing the intercalation effects this. The blue is the current standard and shows it takes about 110 units of time to charge the battery 90%. The grey is at 90% intercalation and shows it would take 250+ units of time to charge the battery to 90%. The green with is 110% intercalation shows shows around 30 units of time for 90% charge. The red and black are 120% and 130% intercalation respectively, with times of about 20 and less than 10.

I think this is one of the biggest areas at least in impact today. Almost everything is becoming or is already mobile in one way or another. From what I have seen in this specific area I like the Hydrogen power cells the best. There battery run time as well as power amount are great. how would you like a laptop with decent components that would run like it was on a wall plug for 3 straight days. Of course it has not made it to the purchasable level yet, and is still only from what I can tell distributed to the Military. At least from what I gathered. Energy on all fronts seems to be the topic at least scientifically today, whether it's mobile in a device, a car, or in a house/business.
What the original article says is that if you add a 25 GHz AC square wave voltage to the DC charging voltage, Li Ion batteries can charge much faster. Larger amplitude square waves result in shorter times. The problem, of course, is doing it cheaply enough for consumer gear while meeting FCC and other noise emission requirements.
Hmm, this would be be especially useful with things like cell phones- but I think larger capacities really need a different medium.
Thanks to infinity for the explanation, I was very much lost.
