Fisker claims future solid-state batteries could be recharged in one minute
Fisker, the second car company started by automotive Henrik Fisker, has filed patents for solid-state batteries, and it’s making some pretty ambitious claims about the technology. The company expects to get these batteries into production by 2023, and believes they will virtually eliminate range anxiety when it does.

The new solid-state batteries will be 2.5 times more energy dense than the batteries used in current electric cars, Fisker claims. That means they can store more electricity in a given volume than other designs. This will allow for a range of up to 500 miles per charge. The company also claims these batteries could be recharged in as little as one minute.

Fisker isn’t the first company to claim that solid-state batteries will be a massive improvement over current lithium-ion batteries. Sakti3, the solid-state battery startup that was bought by Dyson in 2015, made similar claims about energy density. Dyson is now developing its own electric car, while one of Sakti3’s co-founders is now on Fisker’s battery development team, according to Autoblog. Toyota is also developing solid-state batteries for its own long-range electric car. Fisker still aims at solid-state electric-car batteries, as patents attest
This will shake up the electric car world !1 No cobalt making them about 1 million times safer ! All old car batteries need to be moved away from populations as the cobalt would convert to cobalt 60 in a nuke explosion killing all life that contacts the residue ! Cobalt hits a sweet spot—it fires off just enough radioactivity upfront to kill you (or at least cause serious cancers), but holds onto enough reserves to make wherever the cobalt rain settles inhospitable for future generations, too. Calculations made in 1950 hinted that sprinkling one-tenth of an ounce of cobalt-60 on every square mile of earth (admittedly, a lot of cobalt overall) would wipe out the human race, a nuclear version of the cloud that killed the dinosaurs.
