Scientists drastically improve battery recharge time

Battery-Life-Indicator

A team of scientists working for the University of California San Diego has created a set of new advanced algorithms that will significantly reduce the time needed to fully re-charge popular lithium-ion batteries.

The new battery charging algorithms are so effective that they can help batteries charge twice as quick, and help the fuel cells run more efficiently and potentially cut production costs by 25 percent. During tests the new algorithms charged an empty lithium-ion battery in as little as 15 minutes.

The new scientific achievement was made possible by a USD 9.6-million grant from ARPA-E, a research agency with the US Department of Energy with automotive parts supplier Bosch and battery manufacturer Cobasys also taking part in the development.

The new technology, once finished, is expected to find its place it all gadgets carrying lithium-ion batteries, including smartphones, ultrabooks, laptops and the like.
