Road to Intelligent and Personalized Charging

Supercharging or rapid charging refers to charging of batteries within a short time, where the ultimate goal is a charging time of a few minutes. The main applications that will be impacted by fast charging are consumer electronics (CE) and electric vehicles (EVs) because both require frequent charging. For both segments, end users want a charging process of less than 5 minutes. This research service explores the innovations contributing to the growth in rapid charging in both markets, the drivers and challenges impacting the industry, and the initiatives carried out by industry stakeholders.
