Tin-oxide nanoparticles can reduce the charging time of Li-ion batteries from hours to mere minutes

In October, we talked about an advanced Li-ion battery design that replaces graphite with the cheaper titanium dioxide gel. This time around, scientists at the Purdue University have developed a new alternative for graphite, in the form of a material made from tin-oxide nanoparticles. According to their research (which is published in Advanced Energy Materials),…
