Interesting, so what't the lifespan?
Looks pretty good going by the claims here:
BroadBit - Sodium Battery
"few thousand cycles lifetime"
Hmmm, well a sodium battery is a real thing with active research ongoing. Broadbit has been working on this since at least 2012. Anyone speak Slovakian? They are actively looking for investors, and maybe they haven't thought of sending Tesla a sample cell.
That's promotional information, however. Let me know when it's been certified by a 3rd party, and they nail down the charging times. I mean, "5 minutes possible" is something that could be attributed to Li-Ion as well.
Yep, I apologize. Could not find confirmation or anything that concise. It 'Pavloved' me into posting it here where it would be appreciated and taken apart.
If you chase around, you can find mention of a research paper, however I wasn't able to see the actual text.
I've been chasing around, and all I've found so far that's of substance is that the winner of that award is at least partly based on one of those ridiculous "Vote NOW! for your favorite candidate of the 14 finalists" popularity contests, as in: Show your support for innovative European technology businesses | euronews, economy.
But I'll keep looking for something.
Actually, I suspect this is truly a fraud. The company has announced lots of completely unrelated products in the past, none of which seem to last.
For a competition that seems to be endorsed by the EU Commission the info is alarmingly vague.
It is endorsed by the EU Commission, what else do you expect?
Expect only your/my money will thrown into black hole (private pockets) and *nothing* else.
Seems to be very small startup, four employees
General Electric has been making Sodium ion batteries for years. They have a largish plant that had been set-up to make them for locomotives and fixed storage, but have recently been scaling it back. I'm not sure of the reasons.
