Self-heating, fast-charging battery for electric vehicles

Self-heating, fast-charging battery for electric vehicles

Jul 5, 2018 United States
Californians do not purchase electric vehicles because they are cool, they buy EVs because they live in a warm climate. Conventional lithium-ion batteries cannot be rapidly charged at temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, but now a team of engineers has created a battery that can self-heat, allowing rapid charging regardless of the outside chill.
