See An InÂ Vivo Formed Solid Electrolyte Surface Layer Enables Stable Plating of Li MetalOMG! A simple yet effective redesign of lithium ion galvanic cells has been demonstrated giving much higher performance. If this works in EVs, it’s a game-changer, total freedom from “range-anxiety”.
With my Solo EV, I’m not too concerned about range except in winter. I can plan trips well within the published range of its batteries over most of the prairie region of Canada with existing public charging stations. If the range were suddenly multiplied, EVs would be a “no-brainer”. They would have about the same range as gas-guzzlers without the worry of driving a fuel-truck in traffic. Unfortunately, it will likely take a few years to make this technology widely available but I expect EV-makers will jump on this opportunity.
