Researchers Claim Lithium-Ion Batteries Can Be Safely Recharged 5 Times Faster | CleanTechnica

or decades, engineers theorized about what went on inside the cylinder of an internal combustion engine. Many of us grew up with clear plastic models showing pistons going up and down, gears whirring, and a tiny light bulb that went on at the top of the compression stroke to simulate what a spark plug does. But until recently, it was impossible to actually see inside an engine while it was running More
