StoreDot’s Fast-Charging Tech Proves Durable

StoreDot, an innovator in the electric vehicle (EV) extreme fast charging (XFC) battery technology sector, has announced that its silicon-based XFC battery cells have effectively cleared a range of charging profile tests. This milestone includes testing under conditions that mirror real-world charging habits.

Why It Matters

This development is significant because it dispels a prevalent concern about fast charging – that it might reduce the lifespan or degrade the quality of the battery cells. StoreDot’s findings indicate that their XFC battery cells remain resilient and do not show any more degradation than cells subjected to conventional slow charging, even after 1000 XFC cycles.

Key Points

  • The XFC cells were tested under multiple scenarios, notably charging from 10% to 80% in 10 minutes. The residual charge cycles (0-10% & 80-100%) were completed at a slower pace.
  • In contrast, the cells were also subjected to full slow charging cycles from 0% to 100%. Their lifecycle performance was comparable to the XFC test.
  • Despite 70% of the charge being extreme fast charged, StoreDot’s cells showcased no additional degradation, a performance akin to the typical slow charging scenario.
  • The company’s proprietary “100in5” technology is highlighted, aiming to provide at least 100 miles (or 160 kms) of range with just 5 minutes of charging.

Bottom Line

StoreDot is steadfast in its vision to provide EV users with a fast-charging solution that not only eradicates range anxiety but also ensures the longevity of the battery cells. Dr. Doron Myersdorf, CEO of StoreDot, emphasized the importance of their groundbreaking technology in ensuring speed, durability, and range, all vital elements in promoting the broader adoption of EVs. Moreover, StoreDot’s commitment to this innovation is evident from its burgeoning partnerships with prominent global automotive manufacturers and EV brands, including Daimler, Ola Electric, and Volvo Cars, which signifies a promising trajectory towards achieving efficient, faster, and worry-free EV charging experiences.
