[Neowin] StoreDot unveils 'flash-battery' capable of charging devices in just 30 seconds - Page 2

post #11 of 23
I'm guessing the energy density of this type of battery doesn't really compare to what lithium ion or lithium polymer offer. That's probably why it can charge so quickly without blowing up.

Medically speaking, "heavy metals" generally refer to metals that have negative health side effects. It fits one definition correctly, just not the one you were using. If you want to argue that the definition I'm suggesting is not literal, you're probably going to have an issue with lots of words.

But the charger has to be one beastly power supply.

I think we can all agree, cool , but will it ever be practical... who knows.

Lithium doesn't react as soon as it is exposed to humidity. It takes a far more substantial amount of water to react. You'll get some small grade reactions for sure, but nothing that is dangerous or even harmful.

And just because lithium is used in minute doses to treat some disorders, doesn't mean that it isn't a "heavy" metal in the medical sense. Mercury does well to clear up syphilis, but in larger doses it is toxic.

Thanks for the insults, but this v.

Like I said, "It fits one definition correctly, just not the one you were using." It doesn't matter how much chemistry you did, that's not the definition they're using.

I don't think its going to help much, cars have many small batteries that charge at the same time and the limiting factor for car charging right now is the amount of power the power source can deliver

EVs currently take ages to charge, much better to flash charge in 3-5min at a servo then it is to wait 8 hours overnight for your trip.

the amount of power the power source can deliver can be anything the power station can produce, nice fat 3phase lines for charging at servos beats 13A single phase domestic power so there is no limit there

Not sure if legit. Even if it is real, it would generate loads of heat because no charger can be 100% efficient.

I mean come on, if you charge it that fast then I wouldn't feel safe to be around it.

Wait a second, didn't some lab in South Korea create Lithium ion cells using carbon to get crazy recharge times like this battery since the added lattice of carbon allowed the whole cell to charge at the around the same time?

Sorry if my wording is bad lol.
