Toshiba shows notebook battery that recharges 90 percent in 10 minutes

Posted on Saturday, October 04 2008 @ 07:26:03 CEST by

Toshiba demoed a new notebook and an electric bicycle with its new Super Charger ion battery (SCiB). The firm claims notebooks with a SCiB battery can recharge up to 90 percent of full capacity in only 10 minutes:
Toshiba claims that its new SCiB-equipped notebook PC is capable of recharging up to 90 percent of full capacity in 10 minutes.

The recharge speed of the new SCiB module demonstrated here appears to be six times faster than that of the original SCiB battery technology.

Toshiba used a new negative electrode material in its SCiB. Rather than carbon, it uses Li4Ti5012 (lithium titanate) in the new battery, resulting in a shorter recharge time and an improved recharge lifecycle, according to the company.

For example, the SCiB's recharge lifecycle has been improved to 6,000 times, compared to previously possible 500 times.

Further, the SCiB technology provides highly reliable rechargeable performance, even at extreme temperatures.

For the battery-powered bicycle, Toshiba developed a 72 V SCiB module by connecting 30 SCiB cells in a series with each cell featuring 4.2 ampere-hour capacity and 2.4V voltage.
