(Boing Boing)   Scientists find adding asphalt to lithium batteries speeds up charging 20 times. Adding lithium batteries to asphalt doesn't speed up your crappy car though   ( boingboing.net) divider line

Asphalt sounds like a rectum disorder.

If it works without any drawbacks to battery performance and life, that'll be huge with electric cars. It's another hurdle down to full electric in metro areas, bringing us ever closer to that.

Scale that up to car batteries and the internal combustion engine will be dead.

SurfaceTension: Scale that up to car batteries and the internal combustion engine will be dead.


There's a few other steps before it has to get on the cart. Extreme temperatures, rural/remote areas and so on. But it is another big step towards it.

That'll go nicely with all the other big breakthroughs that are perpetually 10 years away.

Plus, if you get a runaway overcharge you get flaming blobs of asphalt!  Which is nice.

cry bullshiat, and release the dogs of war.

why would anyone believe this sort of crap, unless it were released by a major corp actually making batteries for something at least as large as a cellphone, or quadcopter.

it would be most lovely to be wrong, but all of the lithium battery super-breakthroughs for the last 10 years have been bullshiat cubed. Yes, there have been incremental improvements.

http://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/acsnano.7b05874

But you need authorisation. Seems to be a legit paper in ACS, by a team at a legit research University. That doesn't mean the tech is going to be in production tomorrow, or it won't have drawbacks, but it sounds hopeful.

Potential energy, not potential heat.

Have a hard data point: here in SoCal, 80 miles of electricity cost me $2.48 at a Chargepoint two days ago.

I have a hard data point here. The charge station says it cost me $50 or more for a full charge.

No problem, I'll take a screenshot of charge cost of the station next time I walk by them. It's at least 50 cents a kwh if you pay into the membership.

You're seriously claiming that a charging station costs 4 times the average rate (in the U.S.)? Furthermore, the largest batteries in an electric vehicle are in a Tesla, at 100 kwh. Meaning using your ridiculous number, you'd be getting charged $2.00 or more per kwh.

Free suggestion, switch to a different zombie log-in and try again.

I can math, should be 50 cents or more.

Yeah it is but it's the major problem with anyone living in an apartment. I can't install my own or just plug into my own outlet and pay the 11 to 12 cent rate.

Is that a Blink charger?

The IKEA near me has a couple and they're POSes.

In any case, yeah, highway robbery.
