Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The development of advanced battery materials and the application of high-energy density secondary batteries have enabled electric vehicles to achieve long cruising ranges; however, excessive charging time greatly reduces consumer expectations and convenience. Therefore, fast charging is an indispensable prerequisite for the global commercialization of electric vehicles, while also pursuing high safety, long driving range, and low cost. The rapid charging technology of secondary batteries has put forward novel and strict requirements for various properties of electrodes. By modifying electrode materials, high capacity and fast-charging performance in secondary batteries can be achieved, which is crucial for their application in the field of electric vehicles. Our goal is to continue to provide further knowledge in this field for readers of this journal. In view of this, this Special Issue focuses on promoting the continuous innovation and development of electrodes for fast-charging lithium/sodium-ion batteries. This Special Issue welcomes original research articles focusing on new, high-quality utilizations of electrodes for fast-charging lithium/sodium-ion batteries.
