Tesla 4680 battery cell has been copied
Tesla, America's leading clean energy and electric vehicle producer, has designed and manufactured the best EVs and battery cells that are on today's market but that may change. Israel's Storedot has claimed to have produced a exact copy of Tesla's 4680 battery cell that has a shorter charging time.
Storedot's new and improved A-Series battery cell, is similar to Tesla's 4680 battery pack
Until recently Tesla's batteries have lead the EV battery market allowing Tesla to hold a monopoly over the electric vehicle industry. The new Tesla 4680 battery cell is supposed to revolutionize the battery life of EVs giving electric vehicles longer range with shorter charging time at a lower cost for consumers.
Israel's Storedot has replicated the 4680 battery cell and improved on it.
Developed by Panasonic, the 4680 battery is more advanced that any EV battery cell produced. It becomes a big deal if that battery that took along time to research and produce is replicated by another company in a shorter time, with a even battery range and shorter charging time. The A series battery, produced by Storedot, claims to be a better component than it original with new feature of fast charge record time of 10 minutes. This almost sounds to good to be true but Storedot COE Doron Meyersdorf, backs up this claim.
The battery life of a electric vehicle is one of the first 5 things you consider when making a purchase. Producers of electric cars are constantly looking for ways to improve the battery technology of their cars to suit the needs of their users. Storedot is Israel based company that is focus on manufacturing EVs and battery cells. The unheard of company until now, is working towards large scale production of its advanced copy of the 4680 battery cell to supply manufactures of electric vehicles with its A-series battery that will decrease charging times by roughly 50%. Storedot has shipped samples of it A Series battery to China and other manufacturers for testing. Storedot's is confident that the extremely fast charging battery cell will be in full scale production by 2024.
Other than its short charging time, the primary specs of Storedot's A-series battery were not reviled. The company says that the A-series cell uses similar silicon dominant anode chemistry that was previously applied to the Tesla 4680 battery cell packs. Storedot COE has said their mission is to provide global automotive manufactures extremely fast charging technology that will enable them to help consumers overcome what appears to be the major barrier to mass EV adoption.
Tesla Battery Cell Patents
There have been case where copy of products become better than their originals.
Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, has quoted (if we clear a path to the creation of compelling electric vehicles, but than lay intellectual property landmines behind us to inhibit others, we are acting in a manner contrary to that goal. Tesla will not initiate patent lawsuits against anyone who, in good faith wants to use our technology).
The new vehicle market is approaching 100 million units per year, this market is enormous and Tesla feels without other electric vehicle manufactures it would be impossible to build EVs fast enough to address the carbon crisis. Tesla also feels that its true competition is not the trickle of other electric vehicles, but rather the enormous flood of fossil fueled cars being manufactured every day.
