Hype— the secret ingredient of ultra fast charging

The race to bring fast charging to the mobile phone market through new battery developments reached a new peak last week with Samsung and relative newcomer Enervate using consumer electronic marketing and hype to bring their products to the global stage.

Enervate, the Irvine California developer of a silicon anode based battery system, was chosen by the gargantuan Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show which takes place in early January as an ‘honouree’ in three categories — Vehicle Intelligence & Self-Driving Technology, Eco-Design and Sustainable Technologies, and Tech for a Better World — for its “groundbreaking” silicon-dominant lithium-ion battery technology.
