- According to StoreDot, the pioneer of ultra-fast charging battery technology, global automakers should consider transition technologies like semi-solid batteries in the medium term
- StoreDot’s CEO emphasizes the importance of leading battery developers providing a realistic roadmap for the adoption of ultra-fast charging battery technologies
- StoreDot remains on target to have 100-in-5 cells ready for mass production by 2024, delivering at least 100 miles of range in just five minutes of charging
HERZELIYA, Israel, November 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — StoreDot, the pioneer of ultra-fast charging battery technology for electric vehicles, has stated that mass-produced solid-state batteries are at least a decade away from mass production and that global automakers should consider mid-term transition technologies such as B. semi-solid batteries.
Solid-state batteries promise to be inexpensive, fast, and safe to charge batteries with high energy density, but they are still work in progress and face major challenges before they can be mass-produced. 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.
DR Doron MyersdorfStoreDot CEO “It is critical that leading battery developers like StoreDot provide global automakers with a realistic and hype-free roadmap for the adoption of ultra-fast charging battery technologies. Right now, despite some optimistic claims from our competitors, pure solid-state batteries are at least 10 years away and certainly not a panacea for vehicle manufacturers currently developing fast-charging electric vehicle architectures.
“We believe a more practical step is the introduction of semi-solid-state batteries, which we aim to mass produce by 2028. These will be advanced, safe and powerful cells capable of a 100-mile charge in just three minutes. They have the added benefit of requiring a simpler and less demanding manufacturing process than all-solid-state technologies.”
In March of this year, StoreDot announced its “100inX” strategic technology roadmap. This featured 100in5, 100in3 and 100in2 charging miles per minute – three generations of StoreDot technologies of silicon-dominated XFC, semi-solid-state and all-solid-state. The roadmap confirmed that the timelines for this will be delivered in the coming decade with 100in5 by 2024, 100in3 by 2028 and 100in2 by 2032. This breakthrough technology will be demonstrated live for the first time on stage at Web Summit Lisbon this week. More information can be found here.
Last month, StoreDot demonstrated the superior performance of its ultra-fast charge battery cell technology by delivering cells that surpassed 1000 cycles in production-ready EV form factor. Now shipped in pouch format to StoreDot’s global automotive OEM partners for rigorous real-world testing, these cells feature promised 100-in-5 EV performance, allowing drivers to achieve 100 miles of range for every 5 minutes to charge.
StoreDot is the pioneer and leader in extremely fast charge (XFC) EV batteries that overcome the critical barriers to mainstream EV adoption – range and charging anxiety. The company has revolutionized the traditional lithium-ion battery by designing and synthesizing proprietary organic and inorganic compounds optimized by artificial intelligence algorithms, making it possible to charge an electric vehicle in less than ten minutes – the same experience as the Refueling a car with a conventional internal combustion engine.
Through the “100inX” product roadmap, StoreDot’s battery technology delivers “Range on Demand™”: 100 miles of charging in 5 minutes in 2024, 100 miles of charging in 3 minutes by 2028, and an extreme energy density solution capable of charging 100 Miles enables 2 minutes to 2032. StoreDot’s strategic investors and partners include Daimler, BP, VinFast, Volvo, Polestar, Ola Electric, Samsung, TDK and its manufacturing partner EVE Energy. In 2022, the company achieved a world first by live demonstrating the extremely fast charging of an EV battery cell in 10 minutes. StoreDot is on track to have 100in5 technology ready for series production by 2024.
