Supercharging Science: The Dangers Of Inflating Scientific Research To Hype Vaporware

We recently came across an interesting article in New Scientist magazine which looked very exciting. The headline read ‘Supercharging tweak could fill electric car batteries 90% in 10 mins’. Wow, that sounded like it could really change the EV market significantly.
