Cornell University engineers have created a new lithium battery that can charge in under five minutes – faster than any such battery on the market – while maintaining stable performance over extended cycles of charging and discharging. The breakthrough could reduce “range anxiety” among drivers who worry electric vehicles cannot travel long distances without a […]

Penn State engineers are looking at lithium iron phosphate batteries that have a range of 250 miles with the ability to charge in 10 minutes. Range anxiety, the fear of running out of power before being able to recharge an electric vehicle, may be a thing of the past. Chao-Yang Wang, William E. Diefenderfer Chair […]

People in California do not purchase electric vehicles because they are cool, they can buy and use buy EVs because they live in a warm climate. Conventional lithium-ion batteries cannot be rapidly charged […]

Out at Stanford University a research team may have solved the problem of range anxiety with wireless charging technology that one day could create an electric highway. The team follows research work from 2007 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology getting magnetic resonance to light a 60-watt bulb.  That experiment demonstrated that power could be […]
