Researchers at Drexel University claim they have created a new material that will allow batteries to be recharged in seconds rather than hours. Is it pie in the sky or a real breakthrough?

John Goodenough and researchers at the University of Texas say they have invented a solid state battery with higher energy density than a lithium ion battery. It also charges faster, works at low temperatures, and won’t burst into flames. Should we be excited yet?
Scientists and researchers around the world are working on improved battery technology that will facilitate the transition away from fossil fuels to electric vehicles. Their quest is for a battery that is lighter, cheaper, and smaller, with greater energy density. It is unlikely anyone will find a single solution that checks all those boxes, but […]
The main holdup for electric vehicles is their limited use, bookended by the fact that the typical EV can’t even go 100 miles between charges, and echarging many EVs requires hours even on a larger Level 2 charger. But a group of Korean scientists have reportedly developed a lithium-ion battery that can be recharged between 100 and 120 times faster than current battery technology. In other words, you could recharge a car like the Nissan Leaf in about one minute.
