New Tech Promises EV Charge Times Measured in Minutes

Power Density vs Energy Density

The elegance of SMC design is its ability to bridge the gap between relatively long-range but slow charging Li-ion batteries and fast charging but distance-challenged supercapacitors. Researchers might finally have a method to create both high power and energy dense cells without sacrificing one for the other.
