Can already come in three years.
In not so many years, you can charge the battery in just a few seconds, according to new research from Drexel College of Engineering.
Dramatically reduced charging times
They have discovered that a new nano material, called the MXene, also acts as a superconductor. The discovery can lead to drastically reduced charging times:
"This discovery paves the way for out-of-the-box storage devices that can be charged and discharged within seconds, saving more energy than conventional supercapacitators," said Yury Gogotsi, who heads the research theme behind the discovery.
Several internal lanes
The new battery with the MXene works by opening many more lanes to the internal storage points than traditional batteries, which allows them to be recharged and used up faster.
"The ideal electrode architecture would be about getting the ions to reach the storage points via" highways "that go high speed over multiple files, says Maria Lukatskaya, who joined the research team at Futurism.com.
"Our macroporous electrode design achieves this goal, which gives fast loading in a few seconds or less," she says.
However, the underlying material MXene, related to the graph, will not be integrated into current technology until about three years.
