Another promising development in battery technology...

https://newatlas.com/energy/quantumscape-solid-state-battery/

"California's QuantumScape has announced stunning performance figures for what may be the first commercially viable solid-state lithium-metal battery. It's claimed to add as much as 80 percent to the range of an electric car, and charge from 0-80 percent in just 15 minutes."

Well that would be a game changer.

Wow, that's quite a leap forward, isn't it?

Looking at the shareholders this should happen and will alleviate alot of the issues commercial companies have over range and time spent idle.

Hopefully the will also make a nice noise when accelerating.... frown

That is interesting. This would be a practical proposition for all my motoring needs - assuming they can produce something that will tow 3T and still have a range in excess of 120 miles.

As regards our fun cars, on a touring holiday, 30 minutes is the minimum stop for coffee, voiding of bladder and a leg stretch.

Could be a serious game changer - if the price is right...

Interesting development, but that'll need a very high output charger and some big fat HD cables for a 15min flash charge to 80%

+1 - just the point I was going to make but you beat me to it wink

Energy transfers of such high magnitude and short duration scare me should anything go wrong. Anyone who has accidentally dropped a spanner across the terminals of a car battery will be aware scared

Lots of detailed development before this would be ready for mass production/deployment - would probably be faster than current Lithium Ion batteries which were first developed in late 70s and took 15 years or so to become technically and commercially viable in phones and laptops
