The waiting period for chargers has been greatly shortened in the past 10 years. For the next ten years, a short pause should suffice.
At least that’s what the Israeli battery-powered company StoreDot says, according to which we are very close to other technical innovations that reduce the time we spend on chargers. Technicians promise that in two years we will be able to “push” the power in the new battery to 160 kilometers in about five minutes.
However, this does not end the promising plans. According to the Israelis, the capabilities of batteries and fast charging will go further. Their long-term plan promises that in 2032 we will have the aforementioned range in just two minutes of charging. With time spent on charging pads seen as one of the main downsides of electric vehicles, the startup believes such a significant reduction could convince many opponents of battery-powered cars.
Technical details of the innovative solution remain a mystery. However, StoreDot points out that in the future it will not rely on lithium-ion batteries, which are the most prevalent today and used in most electric vehicles, hybrids and plug-in hybrids. Instead, he believes in batteries that use biological structures or living cells. The company admits that the production of such a battery is very demanding from a financial point of view today, but it again offers hitherto undiscovered possibilities.
The startup says that its new 100in5 super-fast charging technology and battery (100 miles in 5 minutes) are already being tested in the real world by a number of automakers. So far, however, Israeli creators have not boasted of any exact brands. If all goes according to plan, then this battery will appear in series production in just a couple of years.
