This ultra charger is will have to deliver 160 amp hours of charge in one minute. Maybe the battery exists, but the infrastructure to supply the charger does not. Also, I think there will be safety issues with the high capacity charging station.
A 500 mile battery that can be recharged in one minute? If I were an investor such a preposterous claim would make me up and leave immediately. That's not revolutionary - that's a bold-faced lie and a hoax. Consult a physicist if you need to understand why.
Samsung has grapheine batteries getting cranked up. The lack of cobalt sounds good, but he has collected millions and never produced anything... Possibly because he was waiting for an extension cord...
I just invented a new battery in my garage that is the size of a cigarette box, weighs only 1 pound, holds 100kWh of energy, can be charged in 10 seconds over 1 million times, is totally safe and recyclable and costs around ten dollars to manufacture. It will be on the market in...ahhh...around five years.
TESLA has 621 mile range and Where do you plug in your car if you're traveling far? Dude stole technology from TESLA sad.. The difference between this yahoo and Elon, Elon is a Physicist and sends rockets to orbit.
Absolute fucking lies. Not an opinion, for anyone reading this please note that it would take around 5 megawatts to charge a Tesla in 1 minute.
He may have the battery he says he does (bullshit on that too), but it's useless because you would have to park next to a power station to draw the amount of power required to charge it in that timeframe.
1 minute for a 500 mile electric car - pie in the sky? Where is he at with his technology? Talk is always cheap ... talk talk talk ... I always wonder when people name their companies after themselves. Sounds a bit like Trump ... Don't believe anything until you can have more senses to confirm what you are just hearing. My gut tells me its BS with the 1 minute charging for batteries - which will have to be around 140 KW btw
4 to 5 years away, meanwhile he's got investors to scam. In 5 years Tesla will be massive, and if anyone will put "graphene solid state batteries" into mass production, it'll be Tesla. In this field 5 years is several generations of development. If anything happens with Fisker's plans, it'll be too little and too late. He doesn't have a good batting record at all.
Faster charging is good but you won't ever get 1-minute charging for your EV battery pack.
For a 200 EPA mile range, you need at least 50 kWh. Let's ignore that the batteries charge more quickly when empty and the charge rate needs to be reduced as it fills up and assume constant charging rate.
To charge the pack in 1 hr, you need a 50 kW input, which is about the average power draw of 10 houses. To charge it in a half hour, you need 100 kW.
For a 10 min charge, that's 300 kW. For one minute??
3 MEGAWATTS!! For ONE *fucking* car.
Tesla uses powerwall tech, so essentially they slow charge batteries off the grid, and then use those batteries to fast charge the car at superchargers. This would use a similar tech. If you buy a powewall, you could charge at 120A at home, even if the house doesn't have that much coming to the house. It would simply be charging the wall up 24x7.
Cheaper than Fisker and lower in cost than all Battery technology is the SAMSON SUPER BATTERY BOOSTER 650% MORE POWER THAN A BATTERY ALONE READ BELOW VIDEO TO FULLY UNDERSTAND THIS SYSTEM , THIS SYTEM WOULD POWER THE NISSAN LEAF WITH JUST A 24VDC BATTERY 695 MILES AND PRODUCE 107HP WHICH IS WHAT POWERS THE NISSAN LEAF NOW / https://youtu.be/6eP-B_d9DoI
With their history they need to make a viable successful car first that competes with what's already out there before anyone is going to take them seriously, especially with such outlandish claims. Beautifully designed but eye candy will only get them so far. They've never been able to wrap that beautiful body around anything worth a damn.
I feel like everyone is talking about being skeptical and hating this guy, but I feel like this is repeated history, everyone was skeptical of elon and look at him noe, although he didn't steal designs, but still, I believe this guy is going to make it!
There is nothing special about a 500 mile battery. Its the 1 min recharge that is pushing the limits.
Tesla Superchargers can in 30 minutes charge 80%. They are all over the world. Tesla already haves ~4-5 hours of driving before you need to recharge. Its practical to stop and eat or bathroom at that time, so 15 minutes would be a very practical goal. If that is still not good enough for you a Plug in hybrid is a good way to conserve oil and the air.
What’s gunna happen when all these companies bring out their own batteries and chargers? Are we gunna have dozens of batteries and chargers that aren’t compatible with each other? We need a universal battery system.
They file thousands more patents per year now than the US, they have 17 Silicon Valleys. They have far more Science and technology graduates not only in number , but as a percentage of 25-35 year olds than the US and are leading the AI race as well as being at the leading edge of the pack in so many other techs these days. The anti science crusade as a political and ideological or religious expression (basically over Tobacco, Pollution and AGW) has actually done great harm to America's future industry and economy
So many YouTube commentators are stuck on this 'this guy vs that guy' way of thinking.
There is no "Tried to steal from Tesla" here.
Elon Musk stated that he made his Tesla electronic tech patents free for any automaker to use, with his announcement that he wanted to encourage competition -that 'competition' is not even the right word - 'participating and working together' is the better way to describe it; for it is to the world's benefit that the more manufacturers start producing electric cars now the better, to replace internal combustion engine power as fast as possible.
He stated that "Tesla company could never - and should not be expected to "do it all by itself." He went against the grain of 'business-as-usual 101' that states that technology patents should be harbored by a company to maintain monopoly to protect profits.
Elon flipped that on its head; Give the patent away to create an entire industry for the common good of humankind. Invite everybody to jump in and build what they can.
He further said that the idea of keeping a tech advancement to oneself is not in the interest of humanity, and that we just don't have time, we don't have 50 years to wait for the replacement and elimination of fossil-fuel burning engines. We need this to happen in a much shorter time-frame, and the only way that can happen is for everyone to start manufacturing electric vehicles as fast as possible.
Whatever Fisker's alleged crimes in the past, he should be commended for what he's trying to do now. Hopefully his car really does live up to his announced performance specs. Graphene capacitors are here, and lithium is not an unlimited resource.
Fisker is doing a good thing, like it or not, most certainly with Musk's blessings.
Fisk and Musk are contemporaries, and are probably on friendly terms, and behave like intelligent gentlemen striving for a common goal.
I'm waiting to see who comes out with economical mass production of 'Flow Batteries', especially the one based on Vanadium - far superior to lead/acid.
Even better are the saltwater flow batteries. So far, the most recent advancement at Harvard has been able to engineer a flow-battery that loses only one percent of its capacity per 1000 cycles. Lithium ion batteries don’t even survive 1000 complete charge/discharge cycles. Lithium will have had its day, and will be relegated to the past.
Hopefully the big electric companies and car companies are on that already.
Super-capacitors can be hooked up in conjunction with Flow-batteries to provide combined fast-charge and long-term power retention, perfect for quick access to high-burst power without the wait.
Elon Musk doesn't have a problem with it, and you won't ever hear him say; "They stole my electric power or electric car tech"
He gave it away for free, just as Tesla meant for humanity to have access to free power.
How safe is sitting in a car that is pumping 450kWh of power into a battery. Wireless charging puts out a high degree of radiation. I'm concerned about the health ramifications of being so close to that much electricity.
How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
