Solid State Batteries Just Around the Corner?

1077 ratings | 44350 views
I just received a small sample Solid State Battery and it works! So I made a quick video going over a few of the aspects of this new technology that will certainly be powering our devices and cars in the near future. A Solid State battery is good for around 1,200 cycles. Most lithium-ion batteries have a rated lifetime of somewhere between 500 and 1,500 charge cycles. http://selmateacher7.wix.com/home#

I meant non-flammable. Thank you for the correction, everyone.
That's one of the odd things in English - Flammable and inflammable meaning the same thing - "nonflammable" feels so clunky in comparison - the hyphenation is apparently optional, ^oo^
Thank you for the comment and information.

Actally Al has 0.9 kJ per kg.
Rok Adamlje (8 months ago)
If energy density reaches 500wh per kg, that means 1800kJ of internal energy of a kg of battery. Specific heat capacity of water is 4.2kJ/K, aluminum 2kJ. Say the materials inside have on average 1.5kJ/. 1200C of temperature rise if shorted!

Please don't use greenscreen/bluescreen, when the result is this horrible.
+Mikkel Nielsen Good information. I have used smartphones as security cameras before, that is an interesting idea.

selmateacher7 - Daniel Berry If a softer image is preferred for smoother skin appearance, you could de-sharpen the image in post. If you have a newer smartphone, you could try using an app like FiLMiC Pro. Be sure to increase the bitrate as high as possible. A relatively new flagship smartphone will produce better results than any consumer webcam.
+Mikkel Nielsen Thank you for the clarification. Okay, I look into my Logitech 922 pro cam's setting and raise the shutter speed for future videos. I did notice the slight blur, but I somewhat liked it as it hid my deep wrinkles and other defects . LOL. The shadow-effect is another issue. I will check the shutter speed on that setup when I am back in that area. I do have other cameras. My latest is a JVC GZ-R470-H. But I dislike the misty appearance that it gives every shot, so I rarely ever use that camera. I bought it on my last trip to Japan, my other JVC cam stopped working.

selmateacher7 - Daniel Berry The issue really isn’t so much the color. It is the blur from movements. This is why I suggested higher shutter speed or an outright better camera. The shadow-effect around moving parts is difficult to get rid of with budget setups like a webcam.

It was a very uplifting video to hear that this technology is just around the corner and that it will offer several quality of life improvements over what it replaces. The video did cover most of the domains in which we should expect to see these batteries such as electric cars, mobile devices and possibly even houses through the help of products such as the Tesla Wall. But what I would also like to hear about is how these batteries might aid us in the exploration of space. Could these be used in a vacuum and be usable on rovers and landers? I would really like to hear more about how this technology can aid humanity's future here on Earth as well as off of it.
I really want the Big EV Auto makers to invest more in this technology, because once we have the up-scaled version of these in our EVs, Internal Combustion Cars will become a thing of the past over night. I already own an EV and whenever I give a ride, the folks are shocked by how quick an EV can be. I have already beaten a new Dodge Charger (not the Demon), twice. If I had solid State batteries now, the car would not only be lighter, it would also charge up much faster. Thank you for the comment.

why say 2020 or even 2025... when 2025 or even 2020 makes more sense right? Charge once in 10 years.. ha. More like I imagine tens of thousands of tiny flying device the size of grasshoppers with a camera and wifi functionality transmitting video and sound to cloud storage. And then a service that reads all that data and enables 3d navigation of any place and time. These little grasshopper completely autonomous and looking for unique and missing angles in the 3 dimensional plane fed only by solar energy. yeah... that's what this could mean. Use Case? So many, like keeping us safe. Be ready to surrender some privacy though.
Thank you for the comment. I love the imagination.

Why didn’t you mention how new battery technology will allow us to charge in seconds?
Yes, I agree. Charging times, especially charging times in seconds is really note worthy. But remember to charge a 60 kWH battery in just 1 minute, would require a huge influx of electrons into the system, needing a huge power cable at very high amps and voltage. The "Charge in seconds" claim is for smaller storage units of under 1 kWH. The small unit that I am holding in the video does charge in seconds, but holds a very small amount of energy compared to that stored in an EV, even a modest EV like my 2017 Mitsubishi i MIEV. So, before publishing the ""Charge in seconds" claim, I would need to also state the amperage of current or the flow rate of electrons to the storage unit to back up those claims. As it stands, my statement of "faster charging times" is closer to the truth ( and currently doable) and something that I can actually see happening without taking down the power grid in my neighborhood. Again, thank you for the comment and I look forward to doing an update video, once I see (or discover more information on) a working example of a very large capacity solid state battery that can replace my 16 kWH lithium-ion traction battery that I am currently using.
davidsonnow (7 months ago)
selmateacher7 - Daniel Berry Fair enough, but I think you should’ve at least mentioned that as it’s one of the most important innovations in the technology!
Thank you for the comment. I did mention that these charge faster. In the articles that I was reading, there was no mentions on on exact charging times, only that the solid state batteries charge much, much faster.

What happen to graphene technology batteries?
I do NOT see these batteries becoming useful any time soon. Their "Recharge Time and Amount" will make them prohibitive. You see, these batteries can be recharged up to 24,000 times when the batteries we use NOW have a 1000-3000 recharges. That means a solid State battery will last you a LIFE TIME. with NO Re-Purchase how will these companies make MONEY? Planned obsolescence's is the name of the game and manufacturers do NOT like the idea of NOT selling MORE,,and more OFTEN
Timo Grönroos (1 month ago)
I don't see this as problem. If batteries outlast cars, they will have greater residual value as they can be recycle to other products, storing energy in grid, offices and homes. That would make cars cheaper to produce.

It seems that racing would be the first application for this type of battery since it has such a wide range of operating temperatures. It would be interesting to see a manufacturer of the battery configure a battery pack of SSBs suitable for the Tesla model S or model 3. The motors for these vehicles are very high performing and on a formula e race track put tremendous demands on the battery. They frequently have to drop out because of heat issues. The manufacturer of SSBs would go a long way toward proving its claims if they could operate a high performance motor under race conditions.
Very true. Thank you for the comment.
Lou Fazio (8 months ago)
Jeez, is the language getting screwed up. In- means "not" while inflammable is defined as "flammable"? -- something is wrong here, and it is the definition of inflammable which SHOULD be "not flammable" (imflammable would also be consistent with the use of impossible). It seems there has been a mixup of enflammable. (Then, "inflate" should have been "enflate"). Ridiculous.

Yeah was going to buy a Wolfpack or Shark Pack battery from Lunacycle but have decided to wait. We are more than half way to 2019 and there are a number of battery solutions better than the 18690 currently in usage. plus those 18690 can be prone to fires as well. Fires vary a lot on a good BMS (Battery Management System)... The key here is the industries not touting research and finally getting these so-called marvels like Solid State and Super or Ultra Capacitor Technologies out there already. Been hearing about one miraculous battery breakthrough after another, but nothing to buy yet. Time and the markets are a wasting.
Thank you for the comment. I too was looking into ebikes before I bought my EV.

I'm a small oil producer. This will work. It will take many years to get up and running and I will diversify before that time. Lithium ion never bothered me because of all it's downsides, charge time not least. Solid state batteries could have only 100 miles range because e recharge as fast as pumping gas in your car. I am also certain that they will be scaled up and you will get midsize sedans with 300 mile range. I still have about 10 years of oil business but I will ease into something else within 5 years, not be a fool and wait to the last moment. There will be demand for oil into the next century though, aircraft for one thing. This would be awesome for an electric motorcycles.

Tesla, I'm not aware of any forthcoming solid-state including graphene enriched battery they're working on, in fact Tesla is getting snubbed from Panasonic. Toyota, BMW, Hyundai, Fisker and a few others while they're making progress aren't that optimistic. The reality is the solid-state battery science is lagging behind the bragging and half baked patents. Best case late 2020's but more realistically mid 2030's before any large scale affordable solid-state batteries.
Whoa! Thank you for the update. I am sure Elon will find some way to further this research. Speaking of updates, Japan has invested money towards the Solid State battery and that's good.

Higher energy density will bring smaller battery packs and cut weight down and therefore increase efficiency
Thank you for the comment. This is very true and we may be seeing EVs with smaller ranges, but with faster recharging times. The good thing is that we can still recharge in the home for our daily commute.

what about the recharce cycle life? are they an improvement on lipo?
Tyler Durden (8 months ago)
Apparently they can last up to 23 000 charge cycles.
There are currently at least eight different categories of solid-state batteries that use different materials for the electrolyte. These are Li-Halide, Perovskite, Li-Hydride, NASICON-like, Garnet, Argyrodite, LiPON, and LISICON-like. This is rather new technology for 2018, but researchers are just coming to grips with the best types of solid-state electrolyte to use for different product categories. None have come out as clear leaders just yet, but sulfide-based, LiPON, and Garnet cells are currently seen as the most promising for their capacity and longer life cycles.
Solid-state electrolytes are typically less reactive than today’s liquid or gel, so they can be expected to last a lot longer and won’t need replacing after just 2 or 3 years (ouch). This also means that these batteries won’t explode or catch fire if they are damaged or suffer from manufacturing defects, meaning safer products for consumers in the long run.

Joe Black (8 months ago)
Nice. If it already incorporates tech to harvest kinetic energy then the cover should be PV, and for good measure the substrate should incorporate materials to harvest energy from heat. I mean it won't charge it quickly, but it will charge it a bit. And since it's a margins game - I say why not...

Any guess on what the weight savings will be?
Update on weight savings: According to Nikkei Asian News, the Japanese government is investing $14 million (US) into Solid State Battery research with the goal of reducing the weight of the battery by 80%. Wow, that is big amount. The Japanese are also working on hydrogen fuel cell technology, yet very little has been heard from them on that topic.
The weight savings depends on the technology and materials used. I have seen numbers from 5% to over 20% weight savings for the same kilowatt- hours storage.

Russell Fine Arts (8 months ago)
Fisker and others have already built an EV-scaled solid-state battery and have been in durability testing to release for sale in their cars by: 2020. Sakti3 worked on solid-state batteries for the past 11 years and their technology is now with LG Chem, who bought them and will appear in GM EV's. I think solid-state Li-on batteries will be the norm by: 2022-2025 in all battery electric devices and will put gasoline cars out of business and into the history books.
EpiDemic117 (8 months ago)
I don't oppose the concept of EV's at all. I think they have great benefits especially in being quiet and require very little maintenance. Eventually yes they will replace the ICE engine for small commuter vehicles as the battery technology improves as well as the cost going down, the people above didn't listen to me when I stated the engineering problems with will have to be overcome inorder to make that happen. but I guess because i pointed that fact out that there will be alot of new infrastructure and adaptions inorder to support it I must be literally Hitler or in their claims "work for the evil oooooil companies" for stating the obvious. What will have to happen is power companies will need to find a way to balance the grid when you have overnight strain from all of the EV's charging, another solution though could be to have what tesla is doing with their powerwall where you could store energy during off peak hours or from solar on your roof and use it to charge your vehicle. Though it is kinda inefficient because you'll have losses when transferring the power unless a better battery design (like solid state) could be implemented. Also in california. it's nearly impossible and super expensive to construct a new power-plant due to all of the beurocratic regulations (noise pollution, environmental impact studies, permits up the ass that take years if not decades to obtain) unless it's in the same location as the old one and even if it's a natural gas fired powerplant. .
rbbartho (8 months ago)
EpiDemic117: Imagine several environmentally regulated electric power generating plants replacing thousands of ICE. Along with MPG equivalence if at least 100, EV's don't consume energy and pollute like ICE while stopped in traffic. I believe that it's a big win for the environment. I'm 70 years old and hope to live long enough to see the outcome.
EpiDemic117 (8 months ago)
"Maintenance requires energy. Energy to install the parts, energy to produce the parts" So now you are going full retard in trying to argue on the level of how many calories it takes to maintain a vehicle? By looking at how fat everyone is I don't think that would be a problem in anyway for them to work those flabby arms and loose a few extra pounds. What a stupid argument.
EpiDemic117 (8 months ago)
hahah oooo conspiracy. Somehow I work for the evil oil industry thus secretly conspire against your idealistic nonsense. Welcome to the real world. Where nothing is free. I'm sorry if my citation triggered you. The only part on a EV that will last long is the electric motor but if you've ever worked on an actual tesla or EV. You'd realize they are an absolute pain in the ass to get parts for especially when it's discontinued and the dealer gives 0 fucks in providing any decent aftermarket support for repairs and diagnostics that can otherwise be extremely expensive. Wanna replace a doorhandle? That'll cost you at the tesla dealer. because only the dealer can replace that part and every fucking part on that car has a unique software serial number that will ONLY pair and function if you have the FACTORY TOOLS which they do not supply. Also the BATTERIES will be and always are the main culprit for failure and obsolescence . By the time you want to replace them. Guess what. They are already superseded by a different model or design and are EXPENSIVE AS HELL to replace. That is one of the reasons why ICE engines are still cheaper to maintain for most general makes who don't go full german (retard) depsite all of the bullshit fluff from you idiods who ARENT mechanics. Also. COST. which is what I explained the entire time which you tried to refute via lithium batteries somehow being infinitely recyclable and so continent to do so .Which is false unless we are all made of money somehow because it costs between 5 and 7x as much to do instead of just digging it up out of the earth which is what most new batteries are made by.

I'm sorry if i'm not a blind follower and instead look at things objectively. I don't blindly follow nor praise any technology petrol has it's disadvantages to like anything else. It's completely blind to say that the disadvantages of it outweigh the advantages just like it is blind to say that the disadvantages of EV's outweigh it's own advantages for certain applications. They all have their strengths and weaknesses. None of them are a fix all to every problem. I look at things at the basis of what they can be practically used for in the current time frame and what they cost. I don't follow a Blind line of hype and group think like you. Also.

Kemp Stephens (8 months ago)
Good point! I thought of that later. (duh). I guess we will be on our way to 1000 miles per charge then.
Yes, that is one possibility. I have been reading in articles that the auto industry may lower the total overall energy capacity and range to less than 200 or 300 miles to solve a number of problems: 1. recharge times. 2. battery material shortages. Thank you for the comment and I personally would love to see higher energy capacities in our EVs, yet at the same time I know that would dramatically drive up the cost of the battery unit and the cost of the car as a whole.

That looks amazing but there must be a catch. 300 miles and recharge in minutes?. They will cost 3 times the price of the ones we have today. There´s no way oil companies are going to let this happen, it would be the end of the combustion engine. I hope Im wrong and these solid state batteries do come and will be at least the same price as the regular ones.

I'm a big fan of ICE vehicles and honestly don't give a damn about EVs, but I will definitely buy an EV for a daily, but as it stands I'm not touching an EV till I can recharge it as fast as I can fuel my car. Second, for those of you who think this battery tech is going to come down in price anytime soon... That's being highly ignorant. Right now alone... Buying a quality Lithium Ion battery just for an ICE vehicle is at least $100 over a 6yr guaranteed lead-acid battery. Hence, why no manufacturer puts a Li-ion battery in an ICE engine from factory. Li-ion Batteries are already expensive and raising prices of EVs... Hell, ICE cars still rise in price every year. At what point do we say enough is enough at car prices? By time Li-Ion batteries become the norm even for ICE engines... I fear SSB will be in a bad place..It's only worse when you think about how many devices use Li-Ion batteries and it's still expensive.
true, does "less than 59 minutes sound better?"
IncognitoTorpedo (8 months ago)
"Recharge in minutes" is a silly canard. First of all, as Platypus Paws pointed out, the vast majority of charging is done while the car owner is sleeping, working, or eating. Secondly, pushing 50-100 kwh into a battery in a few minutes will require a huge level of power, and a cable so thick that it would be hard to lift. Today's DC fast charging technology is already pretty good, and getting better. The real problem with massive adoption of EVs is the COST of the battery, both up front and lifetime.

There are huge problems with durability. In their recent press releases, Toyota hopes to have the technology ready by 2028, VW by 2025. I hope a solution can be found sooner, but if not, by that time the solid state batteries will also have to compete economically with the mass produced li-ion for automotive applications.
Yes, so do I. It will save weight, space, and could chop the price of owning an EV by a good margin.

Yes, Thank you for the correction. I am happy you knew what I meant. non-flammable is right. I just bought a new EV and I hope to do a number of videos on it.

This is a very interesting and enllightening video. I did not know that solid state batteries were advancing so quickly. Great information for anyone who has had a problem with their smart phone battery. AAAAA+

Except he absolutely doesn't know what he is taking about. Toyota is probably the biggest investor of the technology, and according to them it's still another decade.

I do “app” food delivery also and was thinking the EXACT same thing as you in regards to the Smart Fortwo. The only reason I have not pulled the trigger is because it does not have fast charging 😢. Maybe I should just get the gas model for now????? I DONT LIKE GAS CARS, I LIKE ELECTRIC. I was then thinking about getting something with more range like a Bolt or Tesla but you can’t find parking as easily in those like the Smart Fortwo. What to do, what to do🤯🤔?
I was contemplating getting the Spark EV for my food delivery "app" job. The Spark seems to be torquey on the take off almost like they decided not to "buffer" it. Sounds like a blast to drive! My other consideration is the Smart EV with it's tight turning radius and ease of parking dimensions, even more so than the Spark. Concerning the Solid State Tech you said Tesla IS working on it too? I hope so!
Thank you for the comment. I am going to the Chevy dealer today to see a Chevy Spark.

It would be good to see them in EVs. I hope its true that they have the capacity, energy density, and high output needed for those automotive applications.
