Re: Good news, everyone!
And another wonderful new technologogy:
A self-assembling 3D battery, with
"orders of magnitude higher power density. In other words, you can access the energy in much shorter times than what's usually done with conventional battery architectures."How fast is that? Wiesner said that, due to the dimensions of the battery's elements being shrunk down to the nanoscale, "by the time you put your cable into the socket, in seconds, perhaps even faster, the battery would be charged."
It's a proof-of-concept, so no, we won't ever see it in production!
And of course, incredibly fast charging means much larger input power source - fine for pumping a few AmpHours into a phone, not so fine to charge a car in a few minutes!
