Interesting story Elizabeth. Quick charging would certainly make EVs more attractive. Likewise with many, many products. It will be surprising if there is a simple, inexpensive solution to this. Quite an advance.
Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
