New carbonized lithium-ion batteries charge nearly 120 times faster than usual!
Lithium-ion batteries might be the answer to powering up our electrical needs away from the grid, though these are known to take typically longer hours to charge up. Recently, a group of researchers from the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology in South Korea have come up with a new battery manufacturing technique that helps decrease the time taken by these to charge to a few minutes! These batteries are predicted to charge 30 and 120 times faster than normal li-on batteries and are densely interwoven with conductors. A development like this could help boost the electric-car industry and subsequently make our everyday gadgetry quicker to juice up!
