A battery that can be recharged up to 70 percent in only two minutes has been developed by Nanyang Technology University it is being reported.
These batters will also have lifespans of over 20 years, which is more than 10 times that of the existing lithium-ion standard.
If this report is accurate, it will mean electric cars might start to make sense . The vehicles could then be recharged in just minutes and battery replacement would not longer be akin to buying a new car every year.
Still, to make things truly carbon-emission free, the coal and natural gas plants doing the charging would have to be replaced. The only realistic carbon-emission free options as of now are nuclear and hydro.
