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.

Hopefully, these batteries will need less energy than the standard ones. After all, we need to head towards a more energy-efficient way of life.

    The batteries market is changing very fast with all the new technology that develops each day further and further. Imagine that now they are talking about digital quantum batteries, but that is still a project. In a few years we will probably have that.
