Fast-charging battery offering 100 miles in 5 minutes promised by 2024

StoreDot CEO Doron Myersdorf in lab

StoreDot has revealed its strategic technology roadmap – 100inX – which aims to deliver batteries capable of charging a 100 miles of range on a two minute charge within 10 years.

It is also on track to produce its silicon-dominant anode XFC lithium-ion cells at scale by 2024, which will be capable of delivering 100 miles of range with five minutes of charge.

In parallel, StoreDot is already at the advanced stages of developing semi-solid-state technologies which will further improve the batteries by 40% over four years – delivering 100 miles of charge time in just 3 minutes and be mass production ready by 2028.

Dr Doron Myersdorf (pictured), StoreDot’s CEO, said: “It’s absolutely crucial that we give global automotive manufacturers a clear, realistic and hype-free roadmap for the introduction of our fast-charging battery technologies.

“After intense development of our silicon-dominant chemistries we will be mass-production ready by 2024, delivering a transformative product that will overcome the major barrier to the widespread adoption of electric vehicles – charging times and range anxiety.

“However, we are committed to a rapid transition to a cleaner, zero-emissions world and our strategic technology roadmap extends long after 2024, where each milestone represents an impressive performance improvement - a major impact on the driver’s experience.

“We are also progressing with our semi-solid-state battery aiming for its production at scale by 2028, which will demonstrate a better charging experience for EV drivers in terms of miles per minute of charging.”

Myersdorf says its ultimate goal though is to produce cells that will “revolutionise charging times”, achieving 100 miles of range in only two minutes.

“This breakthrough performance that was once considered impossible is achievable with StoreDot’s technology in just 10 years from now,” he added.

StoreDot’s extreme fast charging cells will be available in both pouch and the 4680 family form factor – the formats increasingly favored by the majority of global car manufacturers.

Pioneering work for these XFC cells has been undertaken with participation of global experts from Israel, the UK, the US and in China. ‘100in5’ cells of StoreDot’s XFC technology are already being tested in the real world by a number of OEMs.
