A new fast charging all solid-state battery has been created by a research team led by John Goodenough at the Cockrell School of Engineering. The American physicist John Goodenough got a Charles Stark Draper prize for the lithium-ion batteries which are now omnipresent in the digital world. It was decades ago, but even at 94, the physics pioneer isn’t going to stop developing things that impress and benefit the human kind.The team has published a research paper in the Energy & Environmental Science journal. The noncombustible fast charging battery can hold a considerable amount of extra charge – almost three times – than the conventional batteries.Goodenough says cheap batteries having more charging of cycles can improve the capabilities the battery driven cars and increase their adoption.
