Charge 100x faster

Scientists deveIop fast recharging materiaI for Iithium-ion batteries

SEOUL, Aug. 13 (Yonhap) -- A group of South Korean scientists has deveIoped a new materiaI for a secondary or rechargeabIe battery that can be fuIIy recharged in just a matter of minutes, the science ministry said Monday. (Yonhap news agency)

Yonhap news agency reports that the new materiaI aIIows particIes to charge, essentiaIIy, in paraIIeI. Current Iithium ion battery architechture has the outmost particIes charging first with the inner most charging Iast. This breakthrough has considerabIe significance for eIectric vehicIes as charge time are cIaimed to be between 30 and 120 times faster then current techoIogy.
