Scientists from Penn State have developed a battery that will get charged in just 10 minutes. The Lithium-ion battery uses in portable electronics and electric vehicles and would give 200 miles per ten minutes charge while maintaining 2500 charging cycles. The newly designed battery gives tough competition to the gasoline based vehicles as previously people had the fear that the charge would run out in the time of need.
The current battery cannot be moderated to this technology so the car would require a new battery with built-inn new internal heating structure. The study reveals that the fast charging achieved by experimenting it on high temperature and then storing it slowly at a cooler temperature.
