Fast-charging lithium batteries to come in two or three years
Researchers from MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) are currently working on a lithium-ion battery that can be fully charged within seconds – as opposed to the Li-Ion batteries available today on the market, which, as we all know, require up to several hours for being 100% charged.
The new batteries could be smaller and lighter than the regular ones, this making them perfect for mobile phones and various other small-sized devices.
Moreover, due to new techniques and new materials used, the batteries would degrade at a very slow pace, even if they’re repeatedly recharged.
This below is “a sample of the new battery material”:
MIT engineers already have a prototype of the superfast-charging battery and say that we may be able to buy such batteries in the next two or three years.
