Re: SolidEnergy - 13 Wh in 29 g li-ion cell - any independent confirmation?

Seems there is no other option than wait and see if there is anything real in this.

Re: New John Goodenough battery with high (too high?) energy density

What makes you say that? From what I understand Musk has called for people to bring their new battery tech for review by Tesla. Why? A simple probability calculation: How many battery breakthroughs a week do we have? How many find their way into a working commercially available unit? And in this pa...

Re: New John Goodenough battery with high (too high?) energy density

The paper has drawn criticism from other battery researchers, who tell Axios one aspect of the new battery cells — the relative dielectric constant — is higher than ever before recorded in any material known to science.


No bold guess that Elon won't get a cell...

Re: Z-Pinch Renaissance

Hmm, Shumlak's Zap Energy Inc now has an ominous countdown to September 1st 2018 on their website: https://www.zapenergyinc.com/ It could be a coincidence, but ARPA-E funding will run out by the end of August. So that could be the day they decided to present their latest results to the world in ord...

Re: Is this a dumbed down version of the tri-alpha concept?

With larger dimensions comes less demanding physics. Perhabs they have opted for some kind of ideal compromise. The coil arrangement and the burn chamber in an FRC is vastly simpler than in a tokamak so one should not conclude that it will cost as much as a tokamak of the same size. The full article...

SolidEnergy - 13 Wh in 29 g li-ion cell - any independent confirmation?

This company is claiming 13 Wh in a 29 g li-ion cell: http://assets.solidenergysystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/08171937/Hermes_Spec_Sheet1.pdf http://www.solidenergysystems.com/ Quite outrageous. Is this yet another startup soon to be forgotten or is there any indepent confirmation? They also...
