StoreDot keeps posting progress as a pioneer of extreme fast charging battery technology for electric vehicles (EVs). The company recently demonstrated its ability to charge a full-scale EV battery cell in just five minutes with sufficient energy for a 100-mile drive.
The demonstration at EcoMotion Week 2022 in Israel lends support to StoreDot’s 100inX strategic technology roadmap, intended to transform automotive travel and facilitate the rapid transition to a more sustainable, zero-emissions future, by delivering batteries capable of charging 100 miles of range on a 2-minute charge by 2032. The 300 mm x 100 mm pouch cell showcased at the event was charged under a 10-minute time limit, during which the cell charged to 20 Ah, exceeding the 0% to 80% capacity target set for the demonstration.
The cell maintained a charge rate capable of adding 100 miles of range every five minutes of charging. At no point did the battery temperature exceed 33° C, well below the recommended operating temperature set by StoreDot’s engineers and all critical parameters of the cell performed at an optimum level.
