Ultra-fast charging batteries and the cure for EV charge anxiety


Ultra-fast charging batteries and the cure for EV charge anxiety

Intelligent Transport >>

Doron Myersdorf, CEO of StoreDot, tells Intelligent Transport how a unique approach to battery technology could reduce EV charging times from a minimum of an hour today to a matter of minutes in just a few short years.


In EV battery design, by replacing graphite with metalloids, such as silicon, manufacturers are able to do one of two things: either improve energy density or leverage the capability of ion diffusion to improve charging times. Tesla is using this process to provide additional energy, adding more and more silicon to the anode in order to improve the energy density. StoreDot is taking a different direction.
