Scientists can now charge an EV in under 

10 minutes.

Gas tank filling may only take five minutes. In comparison, it could take between 15 and 30 minutes for electric vehicles linked to an EV charger to charge. Many scientists and automotive specialists have been working to find a solution to this issue.

Eric Dufek, Ph.D., stated in a press release that "fast charging is the key to enhancing consumer trust and general adoption of electric vehicles." It would enable car charging to resemble gas station filling in many ways.

Dufek and his research team recently presented their ideas for a 10-minute charging process at the American Chemical Society in Chicago in order to achieve this. This lightning-fast electric fill-up was used to quickly power several EV kinds without harming batteries. It is hoped that this technological development may accelerate President Biden's goal of having 50% of all new vehicles sold in the United States be electric or hybrid by 2030.

To find out "how individuals perceive EVs and the potential buying hurdles," Consumer Reports polled 8,027 Americans from various geographic, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds. The good news was that more than one-third of respondents indicated they would think about getting a completely electric car.

Why it's crucial to have faster EV charging

The majority of EVs require several minutes to recharge since lithium-ion batteries can become damaged very quickly when an electric charge is crammed inside of them. According to the American Chemical Society, lithium ions in lithium-ion batteries go from the cathode on one side to the anode on the other while charging.

The drawback of quick EV charging

 Lithium accumulation from the ions that don't migrate could result from speeding up lithium ions, which could reduce charge time. This concentration may build up, causing detrimental cathode degradation and perhaps even an early battery failure.

Even though they are uncommon, these failures do occur. The price of repairing an EV after its warranty has expired may be more than enough to deter potential customers. Consumer Reports conducted a study, and more than half of the respondents said that the expense of buying and/or maintaining an EV prevents them from doing so. Major electric component failure can occasionally cost more than a brand-new automobile itself. Used Tesla battery packs are frequently listed on Ebay for over $30,000.

 In order to educate computers how to examine 20,000–30,000 data points and determine the quality of a battery charge and the extent of ageing or degeneration, if any, algorithms were used. This information was then entered by researchers "to identify and optimise new processes," which were subsequently used with new batteries. And it succeeded.

EV charging is the answer

The quantity of energy that can be stored in a battery cell quickly has improved dramatically, according to Dufek. Batteries are currently charging to over 90% in ten minutes without cathode breaking or lithium plating.

The research group intends to keep working to create faster, more effective ways to charge lithium-ion batteries. The end goal, according to Dufek, is for electric vehicles to ultimately be able to "inform" charging stations how much power they need in order for juice to be safely delivered in only a few minutes.
