Scientists claim to have up to 70 percent battery recharges in two minutes




Scientists at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore claim to have developed a battery that can be charged to seventy percent in two minutes. The battery could in time be especially useful for electric cars.

Electric cars are in fact now are tied to long loading times of several hours. With the battery of the Nanyang Technological University that time would be shortened to twenty times. In addition, the battery according to the researchers longer. They claim that the battery can be recharged up to 10,000 times writes However, the capacity of the battery is not clear.

The researchers managed to reduce loading time by replacing a gel based on titanium dioxide. The negative part of graphite in regular lithium-ion batteries This material accelerates the chemical reaction of a battery, which leads to the battery charge more quickly. Titanium dioxide would be simple to make and easy to implement in the existing production of batteries, the researchers. Claim as

For now, the scientists are working on small batteries, but they will soon make a larger battery based on the technology. The technique, which has been patented, would have aroused interest. From industry Completely new is the only non: in June succeeded engineers there to develop recharge in ten minutes would be small lithium-ion batteries.

It is questionable if and when the technology goes ahead to the masses. The battery technology runs into limits on making improvements to battery life for example lag behind improvements in performance as the computing power. Although scientists are working on a lot of improvements, but many ideas get it in the short term to practical applications.

Recently, the researchers at Stanford University claims to be the ‘holy grail’ of battery technology. They claimed to have developed, with the aid of a protective carbon nano-layer. stable anode of lithium in place of graphite or silicon
