Scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU) have developed a new battery that can be recharged up to 70 percent in only 2 minutes time. The new battery technology also has a longer projected lifespan of over 20 years. The NTU scientist’s next generation of lithium-ion batteries could enable electric vehicles to charge 20 times […]

Those lithium-ion batteries we’ve come to appreciate in cell phones and other small portable electronics don’t last as long as one would like – the full charge shrinks a little with each recharge. Stanford researchers have developed part of a new dream battery with a new electrode that employs crystalline nanoparticles of a copper compound.  […]
