With the price of gasoline continually fluctuating many consumers are looking to electric cars as an alternative. But they are also trying decide if it is really worth trying to find easy access to charging stations, and putting up with charging times and short battery lives.
Scientists and researchers have developed a new quick charging battery that can someday replace both traditional batteries and possibly even fossil fuels. These new batteries, composed of liquid electrodes, would allow an electric car to travel 500 miles on a single charge, which is five times greater than most electric vehicles can travel, and can be fully charged in less than a quarter of the time.
The material inside the current battery packs, that does not store energy, will be eliminated in the new electrode fluid battery systems. This will decrease the size and manufacturing expenses of the battery packs, and thereby bringing the cost to the consumer down.
