Status of the 30 seconds charge ( not minutes , sorry for the mix up)


#1

I don’t know if you remember it but a few years ago there was this teenager who invented the 30 minutes complete charge.
The patent have been bought by intel I think?
What’s the status on that? Are we using it already or is it still in development ?


#2

Which one of the (seemingly) 7-thousand battery patents you mean? :smiley:

In all seriousness - I don’t know which one you’re talking about but usually the patents over the recent years I read about were not ready for MP (mass production) due to various reasons as either cost or the factories having to switch some things around.

Okey let’s try a five minute research. Maybe I will retrieve it


#4

Sorry my mix up . It was 30 seconds lol lolololol


#5

Ah ah ah I’ve taunted your curiosity


#6

It is not a real battery. It is a capacitor (sort of)


#7

You are certainly more expert than me to know what s the background story of it


#8

Yeah but hat super capacitor can only hold very little charge. If the V had super capacitors only… the battery llife would only last an hour and a half at most be forw you need to do another charge. This is really inconvenient if your working on the way to work.


#9

It’s a graphite super capacitor.


#10

And @iKirin is right. Why do you think the technology is in mass production yet? There is still testing to be done.


#11

I was asking which was the status since it has been nearly 5 years.


#12

Well, nothing has been heard from it yet - if there was a super new & nice tech that’d allow us much higher capacity batteries reliably & for a reasonable cost we’d have put that in the V :wink:


#13

I m sure of it but since you are in the business maybe you had access to more information


#14

If we had more info that info was at least not available for me! :slight_smile:

I recall in 2016 November me and @Mike had a discussion about those technologies - one of his friends works in the sector and their goal was to provide double the capacity in the same space+weight - back then they were restricted to only circular cells and still had the regular weight for the wattage but at least the space reduced already by a good chunk.

But that’s my latest info about one potential tech :smiley:

Thanks anyway to have tried to answer it :slight_smile:
