StoreDot’s CEO asserts the importance of leading battery developers giving a realistic roadmap for the introduction of extremely fast-charging battery technologies StoreDot remains on target for mass production readiness of ‘100in5’ cells by 2024 delivering at least 100 miles of range in just five minutes of charging
StoreDot, the pioneer of extremely fast charging battery technology for electric vehicles, has stated that mass-produced solid-state batteries are still at least a decade from mass production and that global automotive manufacturers should be considering interim technologies in the medium term, such as semi-solid batteries.
Solid-state batteries promise cost-effective fast and safe charging batteries, with high energy densities, however, they remain a work in progress, and still face significant challenges before they can be manufactured at scale. A solid-state battery uses solid electrolytes instead of the liquid or polymer gel electrolytes found in current technologies such as lithium-ion or lithium polymer batteries.
“We believe a more practical step is the introduction of semi-solid-state batteries which we are targeting for mass production by 2028. These will be advanced, safe, high performing cells that can achieve 100 miles of charge in just three minutes. They have the additional benefit of requiring a simpler and less challenging manufacturing process than all-solid-state technologies.”
