- Recharges 1,000 times faster than competing technology.
A new paper in the journal Nature describes lithium ion ‘microbatteries’ which make use of 3D electrodes to store power at densities 2,000 times higher than current technologies, and which can be recharged 1,000 times faster.
The team behind it says the technology can be easily scaled up for mass production.
In principle our technology is scalable all the way up to electronics and vehicles.
"You could replace your car battery with one of our batteries and it would be 10 times smaller, or 10 times more powerful. With that in mind you could jumpstart a car with the battery in your cell phone."
