Ten-minute charging battery right around the corner?

November 25, 2022

Researchers at Penn State say they have made a breakthrough in electric vehicle battery design, enabling a ten-minute charge time for a typical EV battery. “Our fast-charging technology works for most energy-dense batteries and will open a new possibility to downsize electric vehicle batteries from 150 to 50 kWh without causing drivers to feel range anxiety,” said Wang, whose lab partnered with State College-based startup EC Power to develop the technology. “The smaller, faster-charging batteries will dramatically cut down battery cost and usage of critical raw materials such as cobalt, graphite and lithium, enabling mass adoption of affordable electric cars.” Read original article here.
