    "Tesla Canada Industrial Research Chair Jeff Dahn has claimed that the cells developed by his research team could double the life of Tesla's batteries ..."

    That's a bit different than -

    "Tesla Just Doubled the Lifetime of Its Batteries Four Years Ahead of Schedule"

    I'm guessing English is not your first language.

    Funny how reading comprehension seems to have gone by the wayside for zealots.

    Tesla, as a motor company for rich people, is naturally aligned with Republicans.

    A lifetime of over hyped claims by green weenies leads me to doubt this.

    And based on the weenie that posted it, it might not even be true, as hyping appears to be all Matthew is capable of.

    The Beguiling Promise Of John Goodenough's New Battery Technology

    Google's Eric Schmidt tweeted this week about a new fast-charging battery technology from John Goodenough, the inventor of the lithium-ion battery, Dr. Maria Braga and his research team in the Cockrell School of Engineering at the University of Texas in Austin.

    The new design uses a glass electrode instead of a liquid one, sodium instead of lithium, and may have three times as much energy density as lithium-ion batteries.

    The fact that these batteries don’t get as hot, charge faster and are cheaper than lithium, are real pluses as well.
    ....................................................................................................


    Electricity is the most efficient transportation fuel – 10 kWhs is equivalent to about 40 miles per gallon, yet costs about a buck. Electricity is also the cleanest transportation fuel as long as it is generated from a non-fossil fuel source. But we still have to charge them too often to be convenient for travel over long distances.


    Thus, Goodenough’s new solid-state battery cells are ideal for this use. Tripling an electric vehicle’s range from what it is now would put it in the realm of gasoline-powered cars, just what is necessary for the market in these vehicles to really take off.

    Additionally, these solid-glass electrolytes can operate at -20°C (-4°F), so this type of battery allows a car to work in subzero degree weather. In fact, this design is the first all-solid-state battery that can operate in cold weather at all.

    The Beguiling Promise Of John Goodenough's New Battery Technology

    Goodenough is the engineer that helped invent the original lithium battery.

    At age 94, John Goodenough, the inventor of the lithium-ion battery more than 30 years ago and the original developer of random-access memory (RAM), still works at the University of Texas Austin, finding new breakthroughs in battery technology.

    The new design uses a glass electrode instead of a liquid one, sodium instead of lithium, and may have three times as much energy density as lithium-ion batteries.

    The fact that these batteries don’t get as hot, charge faster and are cheaper than lithium, are real pluses as well.
