A fast process for grading used lithium-ion batteries from electric vehicles has been developed by researchers in the UK using old packs from vehicle OEM Nissan.

The team from WMG, University of Warwick, worked with electronics firm Ametek to embed algorithms that can be used to grade second-life batteries.

Li batteries “can be charged five times faster”— UK study

Researchers in the UK say they have developed “precise” testing technology that shows existing automotive lithium-ion batteries can be safely charged five times faster than the current recommended charging limits.

The team led by Dr Tazdin Amietszajew (pictured) of the University of Warwick’s Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) said the technology works in-situ during a battery’s normal operation— without impeding its performance.
