This Company Has The Battery Technology To Beat Tesla

Tesla’s new 4680 battery format promises yet another step forward in electric vehicle capabilities, but it isn’t ready for largescale production just yet. Also, while it promises more range for less cost, Tesla’s new cell design still doesn’t fix one of the major criticisms of battery-electric vehicles – how long they take to “refuel”. Israeli company StoreDot thinks it has the answer and has developed a prototype 4680 cell to prove it. Charging to 100% takes just 10 minutes.

There are a lot of companies chasing different aspects of the battery business, which is understandable considering how fast this market is already growing and how it is likely to expand exponentially over the next decade. StoreDot has chosen to focus on the problem of range anxiety, which largely revolves around this issue of how long it can take to recharge an electric vehicle’s batteries.
