Battery charger to reach 60% in 3 minutes

Sat May 27, 2017 12:15 am

It's one of the Holy Grails for battery researchers and electric-car advocates alike: a battery that could recharge in the same amount of time as it takes to stop for gasoline.

Some of that can be provided by charging at higher rates, as Porsche's proposed 800-volt system for 15-minute fast charging would.

But most of the change has to come deep within the cell chemistry itself.

Israeli technology startup, StoreDot is known for its fast-charging cells, and it first discussed its plans for electric-car batteries in 2015.

That will certainly have a huge impact on people's perspectives! Quick charging will eliminate some of the angst about electric vehicles.
