They should send it out but it took a while.

The chat box works good on their site.

Fyi sale is stock dependent not time.

This new cell is BIG and chunky

Any guesses on capacity? 10Ah+


(May be closer to 45mm x 75mm)

I love how this is like the maximum size that could still fit under a skateboard/in a hummie cutout, and in a double stack enclosure easily.

10S2P being 450mm x 155?mm x 45mm

Probably way more, just keeping the same chemistry and internal construction it would be around 10 times the internal volume, considering they 2170 cells they already use are close to 5 Ah, this bad boy could have 50 Ah. But I’m certain they will have an improved energy density, people are talking from close to 300 Wh/kg all the way to 350, so from 20% to 40% energy density increase

Maybe the capacity will stay constant at those 50 Ah, but there was a few documents pointing to a higher voltage tolerance electrolytes, just a few tenths of volt higher does wonders to capacity

I have my popcorn ready :smile:

4680 form factor… that’s a fat battery. Wouldn’t a 12s set up require too much space.

Maybe they will throw some out into the crowd

He said they are being manufactured right now, and they showed manufacturing video. However, I think production release is 1-2 yr.

The cost of the cell manufacturing is down to $1.2/ kwh with their new methods. Pretty insane
