Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

I think You are way off on a tangent here ,magnify.. Incorrect Chad, you just didn't read the link . The following is the full-text of the Kilowatt Labs page where that diagram (of the alleged 160 supercapacitors) comes from. As you can plainly see, THEY were saying that that's what's inside the ca...

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

MicrotronTec claims to manufacture the graphene supercaps in China. MicrotronTec says: http://microtrontec.com/technologies.php Graphene-Based Ultracaps Unlike conventional ultracaps using Activated Carbon, Microtron’s storage cells use graphene. The higher surface area of graphene allows Microtron...

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

@ Coulomb This is the 3550 Wh unit: https://arvioshop.com.au/supercapacitor/ The 7100 Wh unit is displayed on page 3 of the "Independence Day" Brochure: http://arvio.com.au/independence-day-brochure%20 And the individual unit spec details are where I stated, in the Supercapacitor Broachure, from thi...

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

Ah, now this is the confusion, there are two units available, one is 3550 Wh, and the other is 7100 Wh, and I think it's the 7100 Wh which has the 1,200 devices, and its dimensions are as follows (per Arvio's Brichure page 5) Dimensions (w x d x h) 600mm x 490mm x 330mm So that's 320 supercaps, and ...

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

Thank you Weber. I would say the 18 mm × 65 mm tubes probably are the lithium "Battery Array", but these are certainly not: http://kilowattlabs.com/energy-storage-technology.html Those are the supercaps (if present, and I have the scaling about right from their image) and 25 mm × 25 mm × 100 mm, for...

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

Given the following comment, by Weber, I decided to try to narrow-down what the Kilowatt Labs "Supercapacitor Array", can, and can not be. Weber said: Except that graphene supercaps that obey the known laws of physics (as opposed to magical ones), occupy about 20 times the volume of an LTO battery w...

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

@ TCryptos

Agree, even basic examination, sans simming, makes clear a domestic E storage will benefit from more supercaps and less battery array, maybe 75:25 (at least it won't hurt, except costs more), while a regularly used car would maybe suffice with 90:10 (thereabout), an e-bike 100% caps.

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

It seems Kilowattlabs.com has about 48 daily visitors. Sorry I'll cut down on my daily visits :lol: Given they just showed up on the market and only in Australia, so far, and their website is still being developed, I'm not really surprised. What I noticed in all the associated company sites (even r...

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

So are you suggesting that Arvio completely failed to notice 160 rectangular things in the same box as the 1200 cylindrical things? No. I've just pointed out that Kilowatt Labs, the people who make it, say these exist in there, and that the storage is primarily based on them, and not on the charge-...

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

Those are just matters of opinion, as are all your suppositions about what companies would and wouldn't do. As are your suppositions Weber, you could have left all that stuff out, but you didn't, you chose to go that way, and it reads like company-trolling. Your findings could have sufficed to crea...

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

@Weber. There's the over-cooked suspicion and accusations again. You want to be taken seriously don't you? Well that's not the way. For what it's worth, I'm happy to state I have no vested-interest in any of these techs, products or companies, nor have I ordered or bought any of these Kilowatt Labs ...

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

Thank you Coulomb. First, 'reecho'. Really? Some one who takes the time to read and think it through and comment to point out inconsistencies is a 'troll'? Actually that's the conversation, what you are doing however is more in line with trolling and not a useful part of a conversation of the topic....

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

There are too many inconsistencies with the alternative hypothesis, that these are just LTO batteries. For example: Weber (p1) " ... These are "LiPo" drone batteries. Lithium-cobalt-oxide pouch cells. ..." " ... I confidently predict you will find enough high-rate "LiPo" cells (lithium cobalt-oxide ...
