Fast-Charge Technology Finds Battery “Sweet Spot”

A technology recharges batteries in up to one-tenth the time of conventional methods. The device creates conditions within the battery that allow power to be input as fast as the cell can accept the charge. By creating a charging “ecosystem,” the optimum battery charging conditions are present which, in turn, cause the necessary redox reactions to occur at a very fast rate, with little to no side reactions occurring from an input of excess energy.

The combination of circuit configuration, waveform, and positioning allows each battery to control the progression of the charging process. The battery can therefore be charged at its “sweet spot.” Applications for the technology include aviation enhancements, regenerative braking, and utility-scale batteries that charge from solar and wind installations.
