Self-heating, fast-charging battery makes electric vehicles climate-immune

A fast charging battery for all outside temperatures that rapidly heats up internally prior to charging battery materials.

Californians do not purchase electric vehicles because they are cool, they buy EVs because they live in a warm climate. Conventional lithium-ion batteries cannot be rapidly charged at temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, but now a team of Penn State engineers has created a battery that can self-heat, allowing rapid charging regardless of the outside chill.
