Fast charging, Renault, TU Munich, VanDutch.

Haste hurts: Structural changes that occur when charging li-ion batteries quickly have been made visible utilising a novel X-ray fluorescence detector. Researchers at DESY together with the German universities of Giessen and Hamburg as well as Australian CSIRO found out that damage to the inner structure of the battery material is clearly evident after only a few charging cycles.
