Nissan Discovers a Faster Way to Charge Electric Vehicles

Nissan is working in conjunction with Kansai University in Japan to develop a new charger to help resolve one of the electric Leafs biggest fallbacks: long charging times. The two resources are saying that they’ve found a way to charge the battery cells in the Nissan Leaf and Mitsubishi iMiEV in just ten minutes. To date, a full charge can take up to eight hours in most Electric Vehicles (EVs).

Batteries charged using the updated system were complete in ten minutes, with no significant effect on storage capacity or voltage, the reports said

According to the New York Daily news, the new charger can fill up the Nissan Leaf’ and Mitsubishi (News – Alert) iMiEV battery cells in around 10 minutes. The news sounds great; however researchers say that the new technology won’t be on the market for at least another ten years.
