EVs are not as popular as conventional cars because they have a long charge time and a low battery capacity. This means that a vehicle can usually travel only for 120 kilometers (75 miles).
However, a group of researchers from the Korean Institute of Basic Sciences (IBS) experimented with quantum batteries to charge cars. They managed to increase the battery charge speed by 200 times! Thanks to this, charging time at home could be reduced to only three minutes when using a special station.
Currently, quantum physics is used by scientists to develop new and more efficient types of quantum batteries. However, as you know, quantum physics studies the behavior of matter and light at an atomic or microscopic level. Therefore, the exceptional performance at this scale strongly contradicts traditional physics.
This is how the theory of quantum entanglement began, whereby distant particles can form a bonded system. The bond between them is maintained regardless of the distance. They use this theory to create quantum batteries. IBS researchers tried to apply it to the ultra-fast charging of electric vehicles by collectively charging all elements simultaneously.
