YouPorn’s Team YP esports squad is back — and hitting Overwatch

I mean ... the dude already has a porn 'stache.

The porn pros still want to play.

YouPorn is sponsoring a professional Overwatch esports squad as part of its Team YP esports group. The roster includes several new faces and the surprise addition of Street Fighter V pro Valmaster, who is going to attempt to compete in both Capcom’s fighting game and Blizzard’s class-based team shooter. This marks Team YP’s return after encountering some difficulty participating in certain tournaments following bans from organizations like ESL due to the squad’s affiliation with an adult-video website last April.

Esports is a growing industry that industry intelligence firm Newzoo predicts will generate as much as $696 million in revenues this year. Overwatch, which only debuted in 2016, will likely play a major role in that growth as it has quickly caught on with an esports audience, and Blizzard is rolling out the Overwatch League to cities around the world.

And Team YP is standing proud and erect to participate in those kinds of events.

“Although it took a little longer than anticipated, we are thrilled to finally be able to announce the new team” YouPorn vice president Brad Burns said in a statement. “We’ve seen how strong they are in their day-to-day and that makes it easy for us to have all the confidence in the world in them” Burns continued, “but we absolutely cannot wait to see what they do in this tournament.”

The new Team YP will compete at the Montpellier Esports Show on February 25 and February 26 as part of that event’s Overwatch tournament. Moving ahead, the group will look to participate in as many official events as possible. The ESL still has it banned, but that’s not going to stop Team YP from grasping the esports scene and yanking on it until everyone takes notice.

Existing EV batteries could be recharged five times faster

Lithium-ion batteries have massively improved in the last half-decade, but there are still issues. The biggest, especially for EVs, is that charging takes too long to make them as useful as regular cars for highway driving. Researchers from the University of Warwick (WMG) have discovered that we may not need to be so patient, though. They developed a new type of sensor that measures internal battery temperatures and discovered that we can probably recharge them up to five times quicker without overheating problems.

Overcharging a lithium-ion battery anode can lead to lithium buildup, which can break through a battery's separator, create a short-circuit and cause catastrophic failure. That can cause the electrolyte to emit gases and literally blow up the battery, so manufacturers impose strict charging power limits to prevent it.

Those limits are based on hard-to-measure internal temperatures, however, which is where the WMG probe comes in. It's a fiber optic sensor, protected by a chemical layer that can be directly inserted into a lithium-ion cell to give highly precise thermal measurements without affecting its performance.

The team tested the sensor on standard 18650 li-ion cells, used in Tesla's Model S and X, among other EVs. They discovered that they can be charged five times faster than previously thought without damage. Such speeds would reduce battery life, but if used judiciously, the impact would be minimized, said lead researcher Dr. Tazdin Amietszajew.

Faster charging as always comes at the expense of overall battery life but many consumers would welcome the ability to charge a vehicle battery quickly when short journey times are required and then to switch to standard charge periods at other times.

There's still some work to do. While the research showed the li-ion cells can support higher temperatures, EVs and charging systems would have to have "precisely tuned profiles/limits" to prevent problems. It's also not clear how battery makers would install the sensors in the cells.

Nevertheless, it shows a lot of promise for much faster charging speeds in the near future. Even if battery capacities stayed the same, charging in 5 minutes instead of 25 could flip a lot of drivers over to the green side.
