Re: More new battery Tech

BUMP.


This all sounds really great if they pull it off.


Battery with 4 X the capacity at 1/4 the cost with greater life. Tesla is involved - trying to break the KW-hour holey grail.


The battery, which is now patent-pending at the US and other patent offices, is expected to cost less than $100 per kWh (about one-fourth that of the best batteries today), to weigh less and therefore provide longer range to cars, to have a greater power density (power to weight ratio), have a faster charging time and much longer life.

Re: More new battery Tech

If Tesla is pushing, it could be pretty quick. Breaking the 100 dollar per kWh barrier makes the electric car way more competitive. Also, just in time to replace all those aging Prius batteries. We have Lifeline AGMs that cost us more than 5X this target. The web site says perhaps as low as 50/kWh. Makes the all electric boat interesting too.
