Breaking News - Fisker patents battery that can charge a car in a minute

123 ratings | 14317 views
Electric car-maker Fisker has filed patents for flexible solid-state battery technology that could slash charging times and improve range.In an announcement this week, the firm claimed the new battery could charge a car in just one minute, and allow for a range of over 500 miles.The battery is expected to be ready for mass production by 2023, and will be displayed at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show in January.The new technology attempts to overcome the challenges of solid-state batteries using a three-dimensional structure. This allows the electrodes to cover 25 times more surface area than flat thin-film designs. According to Fisker, the structure will allow for more versatile voltage and form factors.  They may be wound in cylindrical cells with higher voltage output, Fisker says. This could allow for usage of current tooling and machinery for battery packs, along with thermal management and safety requirements, to reduce costs.According to Fisker, the radical new battery would deliver 2.5 times the energy density of typical lithium ion batteries.Solid-state batteries are known to have a number of limitations, such as low power and low rate capability as a result of the layered electrode structure, and issues arising from cold temperatures, the firm explains.But, the new technology attempts to overcome the challenges using a three-dimensional solid-state structure.This allows the electrodes to cover 25 times more surface area than flat thin-film designs.'This breakthrough marks the beginning of a new era in solid-state materials and manufacturing technologies,' said Dr. Fabio Albano, VP of battery systems at Fisker Inc.'We are addressing all of the hurdles that solid-state batteries have encountered on the path to commercialization, such as performance in cold temperatures; the use of low cost and scalable manufacturing methods; and the ability to form bulk solid-state electrodes with significant thickness and high active material loadings.'We are excited to build on this foundation and move the needle in energy storage.'According to the firm, the battery could allow electric cars to drive more than 500 miles on a single charge.Fisker plans to show off the solid-state battery and fast-charging technology at CES.They'll also be launching the Fisker EMotion luxury electric vehicle, alongside a battery module equipped with advanced thermal management.And, they'll have on display fast-charging technology that will allow for a 127-mile range in just nine minutes.'Our aggressive vision for the entire EV and automotive industry, not just for Fisker Inc., revolves around making the impossible, possible – and this global solid-state battery breakthrough is reflective of our utmost seriousness in making that vision a reality,' said Henrik Fisker, chairman and CEO of Fisker Inc.'It used to be about the efficiency of the gasoline engine. Now, it's all about who breaks the code and smashes the barriers to future battery technologies that will enable mass market electrification.'Our scientists have been working tirelessly to deliver. We've done it, and this is just the beginning.'

What is the patent number? I'd like to check this out.

So Fisker does NOT have a patent??? HaHa.

Applications do not have to be disclosed.

sorry this violates every law known to man esp oms law, basic law of thermodynamics = this video is bullshit - would melt all the input wires and think about how much the input would need to be. Video is clickbait its rubbish.

The writer of the specifications doesn't speak the truth! . It's all about surface area, the plates and how big they are determines the output. Now a spiral core plate system has more surface area but the plates can cross short out if more than 1cell is wound up together. Electricity is lazy it takes the shortest path to ground.

You can support a real graphene battery maker as they drive a car 900 miles on one charge help bring the future into the Now. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/fwg-powered-by-paper-roadtrip/x/18349842#/

I would like to hear the opinion of this from the father of lithium batteries, Dr, John Goodenough.

Wow I made it a full 1 minute listening to that electronic voice, hate that voice.

I find this hard to believe. If they've made anything like this, why wait till 2023? I think they have plans on developing better super capacitors and that's as far as they've gone.

How is the battery going to have a 500 mile range in 1 minute and a 127mile range in just under 9 minutes. WTF?
Islamisthecultofsin (6 months ago)
+fourbypete It would take a charger capable of producing 9000 KW (9 Megawatts) of power. This seems unlikely to me. You would melt the wires. I guess we will have to wait and see.
fourbypete (6 months ago)
It's suppossed to be charged in 1 minute.
Islamisthecultofsin (6 months ago)
Maybe it's supposed to be 500 miles in one hour?
kitkat224 (6 months ago)
the video is a joke, the 1 minute charge is probably a lie but super-capacitors are the future i'm thinking their '1 minute' will probably be more like '10 minutes' which is reasonable

Logically, if you charge the battery in one minute for a car to be able to cover 500 miles, would it not be millions of volts throughput for charging one minute?
Vince Williams (6 months ago)
Voltage dosent change, but will need hundreds of Amps and a huge thick charging cable, not to mention a substantial storage facility to be able to supply such a massive short term charge!
Thomas Sutherland (6 months ago)
I call BS. Charge rate unfeasible.
Jess Stuart (6 months ago)
Yeah. You would need an average power of approximately 6MW for that one minute. If you pull that kind of instantaneous power from the grid, the power company isn't going to be happy about it. The alternative is having a slower-charging battery or supercapacitor bank you transfer charge from. But you are talking about thousands of amps of current at high voltage. I think your battery would catch fire or explode if you tried putting that much energy into it that fast.
