Ordinary Off The Shelf Batteries Charged in Minutes, not Hours

LAS VEGAS--Feb. 5, 2013: Test results by Potential Difference, Inc. have shown charge times measured in minutes rather than hours for off the shelf lithium ion batteries, which are used in consumer electronics products such as cell phones and laptop computers and in electric automobiles, without overheating -- the result of an exclusive license from Georgia Institute of Technology and Harvard graduate Elliott Small. Crowdfunding using the international Indiegogo platform is enabling those who need the technology to help bring it to a worldwide market quickly.

The Indiegogo crowdfunding page is: Battery Charging in Minutes

The technology does not rely on development of new battery technology. Ordinary batteries have been charged staying well below maximum charging temperatures recommended by battery manufacturers: 70% state of charge in 10 minutes, 80% in 12 minutes, and 100% in 16 minutes. Even these results might be improved with further development.

Users of cell phones and other consumer electronics such as computers, tablet computers, cameras, portable power tools will not be stranded when they have an urgent need to revive their batteries.

Charging an electric vehicle with speeds closer to gasoline refueling speeds the growth of the electric vehicle industry. Electric vehicles improve the environment by not releasing emissions that contribute to global warming.

Currently, the largest market for fast battery charging is cell phones and laptop computers, and Electric Vehicle battery charging is an emerging large market. Being in both markets strengthens the ability of Potential Difference to have a larger eventual impact on the environment as it pursues ultra fast electric vehicle battery charging. The Indiegogo crowdfunding platform is better suited for a consumer electronics product such as an ultra fast cell phone battery charger.
