Asphalt derivative charges lithium batteries faster, prevents dendrite formation

By Faye Oney / October 3, 2017

Researchers have developed battery anodes made of an asphalt derivative that has the capability of charging lithium metal batteries 10–20 times faster than current lithium batteries already on the market. The material also helps prevent formation of dendrites.
