Fast-charging damages electric car batteries

Just 25 industry-standard fast charging cycles can ruin a car's batteries

16-Mar-2020

Commercial fast-charging stations subject electric car batteries to high temperatures and high resistance that can cause them to crack, leak, and lose their storage capacity, write engineers at the University of California, Riverside in a new study published in Energy Storage. To remedy this, the ...
