Scientists Develop Fast-Charging Li-Ion Battery

A group of scientists from the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) have developed a fast-charge lithium-ion battery that can be recharged 30 to 120 times faster than conventional Li-Ion batteries. The team believes it can build a battery pack for electric vehicles that can be fully charged in less than a minute.

The cathode material — standard lithium manganese oxide (LMO) — is soaked in a solution containing graphite and then carbonized. This process results in the creation of the fast-charging li-ion battery. These networks of carbonized graphite effectively act like blood vessels, allowing every part of the battery to recharge at the same time — thus speeding up recharge by 30 to 120 times.

Carbon Proton Battery Stores As Much Energy As Lithium Battery In Lab Tests

“Will anything match lithium-ion batteries for energy density?” is a frequently repeated question. It’s certainly not in the cards in the next few years. But the research coming out of Australia’s RIMT University in Melbourne says that one day, it’s possible – with a carbon proton battery. The research team have designed and built a…
