Wake me when I can get a sample to test. Before then, this does not exist. Just like the other 100 "breakthroughs" that were claimed in the past 5 years.
So Tesla should to be releasing EVERY battery miracle tech announced? That would be a LEAST 25 different batteries every year. Get back to us in a couple of weeks asking about the NEXT miracle battery. Oh just go back a couple of weeks and Tesla should be making an Aluminum Air battery.FYI; I would think Tesla would bring this to market before anyone else, No?
New battery design can charge an electric car in 10 minutes
Wasn’t aware. If I could delete the thread, I would. For a moment, I thought I was on the “free for all” forums.tesla.com site. Perhaps a Mod could delete it for us?Sorry that we seem to be dumping on this so hard. It's just that these come up several times a year, for year after year after year. So it shows that there is a lot more to something being good enough to become production-worthy. So it is not worth breathlessly getting hopes up with every new announcement of a "breakthrough".
No need to delete it; it's fine. It's just that frequently people see an article like this and then they're thinking that people need to start contacting Tesla to start using it because it's the silver bullet, etc. This was just a bit of "grumpy old guy" reaction about the realism of how press releases are just to garner attention to their experiment, but if any one of these ever starts to show more promise outside of lab settings, Tesla will obviously be aware of it, along with many other tech companies.Wasn’t aware.

Oh no; you have to suffer the embarrassment of your faux pas for all eternity

No slight against you was intended, and no need to delete anything. It is purely a problem with the companies making such announcements. I was excited the first few times too, and they count on that excitement.
@jebinc Yes and no. Buying the FSD package is essentially preordering software. It will not be "fully self driving" for a considerable time, much less without supervision. To that end, the nomenclature is misleading. Was "Autopilot" misleading? No, and people who claim this have no experience what AP in an airplane can do. Will FSD eventually work? I think it will, it is a question of the timeframe.
To give you some more context: Fraunhofer claimed they had made recharging obsolete. Just pump in new electrolyte. That was about 10 years ago. It is obvious today that they were way too optimistic. And that was Fraunhofer, a well respected institute. The exchange of electrolyte does not seem more viable today than it was a decade ago.
First, thanks for starting the thread. Information is good. Hopefully the reactions (including mine) don't dissuade you in the future.FYI; I would think Tesla would bring this to market before anyone else, No?
