Old chemistry gives jolt to modern batteries | All about batteries | Scoop.it
Chemical reactions discovered in the 19th century improve the performance of futuristic batteries.
eric roberts's insight:

Just as i have always said?

batteries will not be that different in future years. All we are getting now is promises,promises and could be and would be?

French automaker Renault can cut off your car battery if you don't ... | All about batteries | Scoop.it
Last year Tesla dealt with its first real scandal, the so-called “bricking” of batteries that are allowed to run entirely out of charge. But what about a car company that could brick a car's battery on purpose?
eric roberts's insight:

Cutting off your car battery

This is known as “bricking” and stems from Renault keeping an eye on their customers who do not make a payment. This is allegedly in the small print under the French car companies “rented battery” agreement.

Also in the service agreement it is alleged that Renault has the right to halt the possible charging of the battery, when the rental contract comes to an end. Apparently this also includes the same penalties if you fail to make a payment on your car agreement, making the car impossible to drive

I wonder what would happen in the case of say a mess up with paperwork or the payments from the bank may go wrong, would Renault then cut off your battery supply, what a mess that would be to sort out, we all know that these large banks and credit companies do make mistakes, you could be stranded anywhere and it would not be your fault? The mind boggles.

modules to build a new car Battery

modules to build a new car Battery | All about batteries | Scoop.it

This is all about the latest battery technology that is being carried out all round the World In my opinion China lead the way, and alos they have the largest share of "rare earth" resources that go into making these batteries. I think that the battery industry are going at a pace to find new ideas, but wether or not they will replace normal lea acid batteries i am not sure of ?

Mark poses with the batteries. We've finally begun constructing parts of the car! Today we headed over to AllCell Technologies, headquartered right here in Chicago, to work on building the battery modules that will help power ...

What Will the Battery Market Look Like in 2030? - Energy Collective

What Will the Battery Market Look Like in 2030? - Energy Collective | All about batteries | Scoop.it
It is not difficult to speculate on what some of the new “killer apps” for batteries might be by 2030.
eric roberts's insight:

This is a good insight into what the battery future may behold?

lead acid batteries, the type that we use most of now will still be relevant players in the market.

I think that the picture in years to come will be a very mixed one due to the mixed technologies of cars that are on the market.

New Improvements to Hybrid Car Batteries Being Researched

New Improvements to Hybrid Car Batteries Being Researched | All about batteries | Scoop.it
Groundbreaking Improvements to Hybrid Car Batteries Being Researched at ...KCOY.comSANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Hybrid cars may be good for the environment, but how about for your wallet?
eric roberts's insight:

Hybrid electric car batteries for vehicles such as the Nissan Leaf are undergoing much scrutiny from the scientific community.

Much effort is being targeted towards creating a much cheaper type of battery for the future. This also includes faster charging rates, for longer journeys and turn round times. In my opinion though i think that the World of cars will be a mix of battery technologies, we are already seen new research into the regular lead acid battery. Universities are looking at ways of speeding up the charging rates... Eric Roberts...www.batteriesontheweb.co.uk
