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.
So the short answer is NO but the long answer is YES.

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
