[Neowin] StoreDot unveils 'flash-battery' capable of charging devices in just 30 seconds - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Problem with this is how many times can the s3 handle being charged that way?

Most batteries have an upper limit on how fast they can be charged (ex: the batteries for my model planes can only be charged at a max rate of 1C, so a 2200mAH battery can only be charged at a max of 2.2 amps, otherwise it'll damage itself.)

When charged too fast, lithium batteries deteriorate and lose their ability to hold a charge. In addition, the stresses on current pcb components in the charging circuit would be many times that of what they were designed for at this point in time, and I imagine they too would deteriorate pretty quickly..

I have issues with words. Words are hard, man.

Now on topic. This would be great if other categories batteries have to balance are well balanced too. Even if the energy density is low, it might not be perfect for mobile devices, but it would make a very good power source for electric cars, where maily the recharge time is a problem currently.

Very very cool. But how does this affect wear on the Li-On cells? As for size, I think it needs to be 10x smaller in a few years of development for anyone to consider having on on their nightstand.
