    These already exist though. I had a battery two years ago that I could cut in half with scissors and it would still work. They’re call Lithium Ceramic Batteries:

      Yes, it’s still in the lab but *every* technology starts in the lab, and it takes years, if not decades, to them to become a commercially viable product. While “breakthrough” may be bit of a overstatement this is still a significant step towards actual product, and shows that rapid progress is made.

      @HidingAllAway Of course every tech starts in lab but call it a breakthrough is misleading, no wonder they have a lawsuit and familiar to Nikola and have VW emission gate as a backer since 2012. Nikola used to say they have breakthrough battery tech and great progress since 2016, so kinda sound familiar with CEO sound kinda bs but not as bad as Trevor Milton.

    People making Nikola references and fraud claims know absolutely nothing about solid state batteries or this company. I’m telling you right now, investing in QuantumScape will build you generational wealth if you are smart. By 2030 this will be one of, if not the biggest, companies on the planet.

      All sorts of storage mediums exist. Pumped hydro – move the water up higher, then let it back down when you need it. You can also use a crane to move heavy objects higher – stack them up like building a castle. Or pressurized air in large volumes, e.g. stored in mountains, or wells.

      There are many options, and to be honest I think these may be better than using batteries because we only have so much materials available for batteries, and these are better used in cars and other vehicles, where say pumped hydro is not an option for them.

      @Richard Wilde There are many options, but ultimately, no solutions. Thus far, power storage by any means is highly dilute, and therein lies the problem.

      In all those pictures we see a pouch cell with tabs size which is not capable of any quick charging. If they talk about multicell stack and build cell 1 anode and cell 2 cathode on same foil but opposite sides they can achieve that quick charging with almost standard LFP components available.

    Looks like they’re using NMC cathode technology as opposed to Tesla’s NCA technology. NMC cathodes are a little less energy dense than NCA but safer. The Nissan Leaf uses NMC as well and I don’t think they’ve had a single instance of a battery pack fire. So I assume the energy density increase is coming almost exclusively from replacing the carbon anode with Lithium metal. This is not new and while it’s well known to supply a healthy increase in energy it also has reduced charge cycles (when compared to carbon anodes). We have to be careful here as the lithium metal anode idea has been thrown around a lot over the last few years for it’s increased energy density but usually without mentioning the reduced charge cycles. These companies like to state how great is a battery pack that allows 1000 miles of range. However, being better would largely depend upon the number of full charge cycles it can endure before losing significant capacity. Temper that 1000 mile range figure with a 200 charge cycle life for a 200,000 mile lifespan. That may sound great but is it really better than a battery pack like Tesla’s which may only get 400 miles per charge but can be charged over 1500 times (about 600,000 miles of life). If the cost is significantly lower than its justified otherwise it sounds like six of one vs. a half dozen of another.
