Fast Car Charging

07-Apr-2011

Another cultural comment on the future of electric vehicles relates to the time required to 'recharge'.

gas2.org: People don’t like to wait. That’s what made Domino’s Pizza the success it was in the 1980s and it’s what makes electric cars such a tough sell today. Call it “range anxiety” if you want, but you can run out of gas, too, and nobody complains about that. What is really at the heart of the matter, I think, is impatience. People want their car ready to roll, and ready to roll right now.

In other words: build an electric car that can be “topped off” in 5 minutes and you’ve got a winner. The stuff of fantasy, right? Not so much.

Paul Braun and his research team at the University of Illinois have developed a three-dimensional nano-structure for battery cathodes that allows for dramatically faster charging and discharging without sacrificing energy storage capacity, which could result in phones and laptops that fully charge in a matter of seconds and cars that fully charge in a matter of minutes – without sacrificing overall range or performance.

The breakthrough comes from wrapping conductive film into three-dimensional shapes, resulting in high capacity and large current. The group has made batteries that can charge (or discharge) in seconds, up to 100 times faster than equivalent bulk electrodes, but which can also perform “normally”, discharging slowly, in existing applications.
