MIT scientists develop battery material for ultrafast charging

While supercapacitor developers acknowledge the low energy densities of their products, they always tout the fact that their products have charge/discharge rates up to 10 times higher than their lithium-ion battery counterparts. That situation may soon change, thanks to a recent discovery by Gerbran...
