Electric Car Battery that Charges in 10 Minutes – new battery developed for fast charging of cars

One of the things that keeps electric cars from hitting it big is the problem with the battery. It takes a while to recharge. An hour or more to get 200-300 miles worth of driving time out of them. An hour to charge your phone, fine, but could you imagine waiting an hour at the gas pump? New technology may have cut this time down to minutes.

Scientists at Penn State University have managed to develop a system to charge an electric vehicle in ten minutes. That’s a significant drop in time! This system also does not run down the battery life, another concern with electric vehicles.

The new batteries would operate for a very short period time at a higher temperature than conventional batteries. This allows them to charge faster and last. This is something that you should try to do at your home and has only been achieved in a control environment so far. Still, if it proves successful and can be scaled up, electric cars may be set to drive right over their next hurdle to the mainstream.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
