Could water be the secret to faster electric-car battery technology?

Could water be the secret to faster electric-car battery technology?

Prototype EVgo 350-kw fast-charging station Fremont, CA Enlarge Photo Electric vehicles aren't always associated with speed and performance, but researchers at North Carolina State University may have discovered a breakthrough to change those qualities inside their batteries. Of all things, water may hold the key to faster electric-car battery technology. Researchers compared two materials, a crystalline tungsten oxide and a layered, crystalline tungsten oxide hydrate—which consists of crystalline tungsten oxide layers separated by atomically thin layers of water. DON'T MISS: Electric-car batteries: $100 per kwh before 2020, $80 soon after? When charging each material, the regular material was able to store more energy overall—but the hydrate showed promise if the charge time was diminished. When charging each material for just 12 seconds, the hydrate stored the energy mor...
