NEW! Instantly Rechargeable Battery

NEW! Instantly Rechargeable Battery

Researchers have unveiled an ‘instantly rechargeable’ battery that is said to reach full power in the same amount of time it takes to refill a gas tank. What is it? Well, technically speaking it’s “a membraneless battery that uses fluid electrolytes to re-energize spent battery fluids.

The process “eliminates recharge time and reduces the need for new infrastructure to support re-charging stations”.

The technology was developed by a team of scientists at Purdue University, who believe the breakthrough could expedite the adoption of electric and hybrid vehicles.

‘Instead of refining petroleum, the refiners would reprocess spent electrolytes and instead of dispensing gas, the fueling stations would dispense a water and ethanol or methanol solution as fluid electrolytes to power vehicles,’ Cushman said.

‘Users would be able to drop off the spent electrolytes at gas stations, which would then be sent in bulk to solar farms, wind turbine installations or hydroelectric plants for reconstitution or re-charging into the viable electrolyte and reused many times.’

‘It is believed that our technology could be nearly ‘drop-in’ ready for most of the underground piping system, rail and truck delivery system, gas stations and refineries.’

Mike Mueterthies, Purdue doctoral teaching and research assistant in physics and the third co-founder of Ifbattery, said the flow battery system makes the Ifbattery system unique. ‘Other flow batteries exist, but we are the first to remove membranes which reduces costs and extends battery life,’ Mueterthies said. Researchers have unveiled an ‘instantly rechargeable’ method that is said to reach full power in the same amount of time it takes to refill a petrol tank.

The innovation is a membraneless battery that uses fluid electrolytes to re-energize spent battery fluids – eliminating recharge time and reducing the need for new infrastructure to support re-charging stations. The technology was developed by a team of scientists at Purdue University, who believe the breakthrough could expedite the adoption of electric and hybrid vehicles.

Ifbattery’s membrane-free battery demonstrates other benefits as well.  ‘Membrane fouling can limit the number of recharge cycles and is a known contributor to many battery fires,’ Cushman said.
