WASHINGTON: Scientists, including one of Indian origin, have developed a new electrode design that may allow smartphone batteries to be charged within seconds.
Researchers in Drexel University in the US used highly conductive, two-dimensional material called MXene to design the electrodes.
The design could make energy storage devices like batteries just as fast as the speedy supercapacitors that are used to provide energy in a pinch - often as a battery back-up or to provide quick bursts of energy for things like camera flashes.
