IMO, this has real potential. Time will tell.

You go John B. Goodenough! A true pioneer. A google/wiki search is in order. This guy is the real deal.

YES! If solid state works as promised it is a complete game changer.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

Like many YouTube videos, they are slow to get started, full of blather, and low valuable content. Skip through the intro to 4:40 for the gold.

Google "John B. Goodenough" Dr. Goodenough is a Nobel Prize Winner and the inventor of the Lithium-Ion battery. Enough said. He (and his team) may just change the the world, . . . . . again, with solid state battery technology. All the major battery manufacturers/users (Tesla, Samsung, etc.) are in fast track mode with this new technology which some say may be ready by the year 2025. Doubling the Li-Ion capacity, doubling the life, halving the weight, halving the space, halving the price. Anyone interested? I think so, . . . . if it works.

cold fusion is the answer

Or for real energy conversion, car running on water

Ford just introduced their new all electric Mustang with up to 459 HP, depending on model. And a range up to 300 miles on current battery technology. Obviously these manufacturers feel a battery breakthrough is imminent.

You are putting WAY TOO MUCH into this EV announcement.

What it means is that Ford believes there is sufficient demand (people with $$$)and the CURRENT technology is adequate to mass produce an EV.

No big company "bets their business" on "an invention will happen soon" !

BTW, within the past 2 years Ford launched a new full size SUV (Expedition), a new truck (Ranger) and a new mid-sized SUV (Explorer). They will launch a new rugged SUV next year (Bronco). Only the Explorer is available as a Hybrid.

Ford still is heavily "hedging their bets" on EV with a lot of old fashioned gasoline vehicles.

Well, I did some googling and came to two conclusions:

1. This guy Goodenough is for real, and he has published some technical papers showing that this new battery is a game-changer.

2. I don't understand the physics well enough to comprehend exactly what is so different and great about this battery.

But wouldn't it be wonderful if the "energy density" of batteries were to get close to that of petrochemicals? Gasoline stores a lot of energy in a small space and with not too much weight. But it's got some downsides, too.
