Would a 1000 mile capacity battery make a difference for you?

There is speculation of an air aluminium battery pack which could give electric vehicles journey capacity in excess of 1000 miles. Would this make a real difference for you?

That would make a difference for anyone considering an EV I would imagine.

I think this kind of journey capacity - assuming costs remain relatively low - would blow traditional gasoline/diesel cars out of the water.

well electric vehicle definable affect the cost. as it is decreasing your cost/km.

In some ways it is a shame that battery technology developments are kept under wraps for business reasons. It would be good to see developments played out in the open.



A lithium–titanate battery is a modified lithium-ion battery that uses lithium-titanate nanocrystals on the surface of its anode instead of carbon. This gives the anode a surface area of about 100 square meters per gram, compared with 3 square meters per gram for carbon, allowing electrons to enter and leave the anode quickly. This makes fast recharging possible and provides high currents when needed.

The disadvantage is that lithium-titanate batteries have a lower inherent voltage, which leads to a lower energy density than conventional lithium-ion battery technologies.
