Researchers develop “climate-immune” electric car battery

electric car battery - charging EV battery

New fast-charging EV (electric vehicle) battery can self-heat. Penn State engineers have developed an electric car battery that can stand up to cold weather. The newly designed battery is capable of self-heating, which allows it to rapidly charge in spite of frigid outdoor temperatures. EV batteries are negatively impacted by the cold. As is the case with most other batteries, the performance of an electric car battery suffers when it is subjected to cold temperatures. In fact, the Department of Energy (DOE) reported that extreme weather (either very hot or…
