p.1 #1 · The battery of the future?


In case some have not seen this, here is a short video of what may be the battery of the future:

Interesting Ron, could definitely leave the Chinese sittin on a whole lot of Lithium.

There are several significant improvements coming in lithium cells also. The problem now is that there are so many different new/improved technologies it is not clear which and when they will become practical for mass acceptance. The battery landscape sure will be different in the 2020s.

Yeah, just ask Boeing.

No mention of capacity there though. Also, it is labelled as a supercapacitor material rather than a battery material, which would explain the fast "charge" time, but could mean considerably lower capacities than a Li-cell.

"The battery of the future"-- has been just 5 to 10 years out...

... for the last 50 years.


Advances in the actual, real, functioning world has been evolutionary. The pure and just beyond pure research is fascinating and hopeful-- but I'll hold my breath for that entering the marketplace.... for when that enters the marketplace.

lets add a few names there:
Securaplane (the charging and battery maintenance system designer/builder)
Yuasa (the actual cell manufacturer)
Thales (the integrator)

here is what a non crispy critter one looks like:

Exactly, but significant improvements do occur occasionally. There must be a balance between density, specific power, cost, longevity and safety among other parameters. I don't see super/ultracaps as replacing batteries for the most part, but of course their usage is proliferating rapidly.
