New super battery. It even has Graphene in it.
« on: May 17, 2021, 05:45:23 pm »
https://www.forbes.com/sites/michaeltaylor/2021/05/13/ev-range-breakthrough-as-new-aluminum-ion-battery-charges-60-times-faster-than-lithium-ion/?sh=7fc966aa6d28

Coming from Aussie-land to you - maybe, but not soon.

I wonder why they don't have a deal with a large customer yet. Maybe, but only maybe, they are not the best, safest, fastest charging [insert more BS here] batteries, even if their CEO states so?

Wow, experimental coin-cells. A step up from extrapolating from the performance of a test-tube cell like most batteries in "new break through (x) charges (Y) times faster than lithium ion. EV's/Phones could charge in (Z) minutes" type articles.

Absolutely no mention of the cost comparison to produce the final cell and the cost of the production technology at full scale. Smacks of academia naivety.

The science seems sound. Producing the graphene might be expensive but that seems to be the only barrier to commercialisation. I remember when white LEDs were experimental, had a lifetime of 1 hour before they self destructed. The main barrier is the problems Australians have bringing good technology to market. Hopefully they partner with people who are better at it.

What's dodgy about it?

I'd take exception to calling most academics naive, most of the ones I worked with were just downright malicious in thinking they had the hardest job in the process!

This is per se dodgy.
There have been announcements by the hundreds of battery breakthrough technology over the past few years. After all these breakthroughs, Tesla came up with a bigger (in physical size) battery in 2020. Most battery companies went silent, forever. I wonder why.

Running EVs on coin cells is not a problem

The problem is scaling that up. That's why it usually remains at the stage of coin cells.
