Self-Heating EV Battery Charges in Ten Minutes

Self-Heating EV Battery Charges in Ten Minutes
An innovative new EV battery design promises to deliver a range of up to 300 miles with just ten minutes of charging.

Typically, lithium-ion batteries cannot be rapidly charged at ambient temperature without the risk of electrical spikes and reduced cell capacity.

The breakthrough lithium-ion battery developed by the team from Penn State University overcomes this limitation by eliminating the lithium plating and installing a nickel foil on the batteries. The nickel foil is then warmed quickly through resistance heating to 140°F, allowing for short, 10-minute bursts of rapid charging able to add more than 200 miles of range without damaging the batteries.
