A new battery that is capable of fully charging in five minutes has been produced for the first time.
The battery was developed by the Israeli company StorDot and can be recharged for 1,000 cycles whilst retaining 80 percent capacity. The key to the battery’s rapid charging is its new lithium-ion phosphate technology that lets the battery heat up to around 60C when charging and cools down when they are not in use.
Electric vehicles with the new battery could go from zero to 60 miles per hour in under three seconds and can go for 250 miles on a single charge.
