another new battery tech for 2019

Post by HeadsUp » Wed, 05 Sep 2018, 09:35

I know we all want them yesterday but at least its projected to be only 1 - 2 years away.

3x - 10x charge density and fast charging , from the guy who developed Li-Ion .

If only we could make them at home :D

yeah we can dream.

I just came back to the forum , i used to be active in 2009 - 2010 but didnt build one due to the battery tech being imperfect on price and quality issues with China (Thundersky LiPo).

I have spent about 5 hours catching up on forum posts today about battery tech , trying to work out what the current favoured battery tech is...

I have a replica Dino Ferrari 246 to convert :)

Welcome back! Replica sounds interesting.
Leaf, Tesla or Lithium Titanate (LTO) would be the go.

There are a number of people working on solid state batteries.
Really still lab stuff at this stage.

For pure power I'd go with LTO.

thanks Richo

Did we establish a best price / ethical supplier for LTO and can the same BMS be used as from LiFePo4 ?


If you didnt see it yet , there is a Graphene battery being developed by Samsung at the moment too
