University of California: Fast charging damages batteries of electric cars

Posted by Christian Pfäffli on

Engineers at the University of California (UC), Riverside, stated in a recent study that commercial fast-charging stations expose e-car batteries to high temperatures and high resistance, which can cause them to break, leak and lose their storage capacity. To prevent this from happening, the researchers have developed...
