If you own an electric motorcycle or hybrid car, you probably know about rechargeable lithium-ion batteries that help power you along the way. But what if you heard about a new Super Charge Ion battery that could charge up to 90% capacity in just 5 minutes, and last for more than ten years, even if it is recharged many times. Well according to the Environmental News Network, one Japanese company is developing just such a battery, which could be available in the coming year. The key factor is that instead of using a carbon-based negative electrode, these batteries use a titanium-oxide one, not only making the battery more user friendly, but also less of a fire hazard. Sounds like quite a charge of encouraging news.
