Improved battery could fast-charge Volt in less than 4 hours.
Purdue University researchers find a way to recharge lithium-ion batteries within a matter of minutes instead of hours – at least on paper. The researchers have shown theoretically how to control or eliminate formation of the dendrites that cause Li-ion batteries to fail. Dendrites are lithium deposits that grow like tumors on electrode surfaces while batteries are being recharged and may continue to grow until they cause an internal short circuit, which results in battery ...
