Fisker solid state lithium batteries


https://finance.yahoo.com/news/fiske...130000111.html

This could be a game changer for a lot of things, including RC of course.

My first thought is, yeah sure. But hey, who knows.

The technology is legit. The question is, is it ready to be mass produced and will it be cheap enough yet.

Lets start anticipating them being used in cars... say five years after they are widespread in cell phones and the like... IMO

plenty of lower hanging fruit for this breakthrough.

Definitely a breakthrough. Exciting possibilities

There was a member here that is no longer with us who claimed battery tech was at its end and unless we discovered some new elements, electric cars were not viable. If you are still lurking, I told you so

Never say never. I would love to see a two fold increase in energy density without compromising weight, cost, size, safety or charge cycle reduction. But these things seem to get press all the ti8me and then..... nothing.

Great ! That will really explode if it goes into thermal runaway.
Batteries can & have been made several times more powerful. With a really nasty explosion if it fails.

Oh well

After a couple hundred or so lithium batteries I have had/have, the only ones that went poof was one that had a carbon rod driven in to it, and one I dropped off the roof for the 10th time.

But if this new tech results in bigger booms, I am all in.

Canít be any more dangerous than a tank full of gasoline

What I am more interested in, is this high recharge rates.... how do they think to get the infrastructure for that? I mean, that are serious current surges if you want to recharge 400 miles worth of electric energy in a few minutes....

That's a lot of wire.

And if the charge rate is greatly increased, so would the discharge rate. No? Careful soldering those connectors.

I'm totally ignorant about things electrical but couldn't a house supply be used to trickle charge a big capacitor then the car is plugged into the capacitor, maybe once a day, to get the high charge rate?
