White paper: A deep dive into QuantumScape’s fast-charging performance

Chart of discharge energy

    Fast charging is increasingly important to buyers of electric vehicles, but high-energy legacy lithium-ion batteries are still limited in how fast they can recharge. These limitations are largely due to fundamental constraints of battery design. QuantumScape’s technology has been designed to overcome many of these constraints, to unlock a step-change in fast-charging performance […]

Distinguishing charge rates for next-generation batteries

Charge rate chart

A critical factor drivers consider when looking at electric vehicles is how quickly they can be charged. Unfortunately, battery experts can use confusing jargon when talking about this concept, so here we’re going to break down key charging concepts and how they translate to the real world.
