In short for almost 50 years we haw seen that cpu has doubled each 18 month according to Moores law.
I know that this law does not apply to batteries - but as we see even more orders are filed and that demand is still high one would expect battery technology to take some big leaps in the years to come.
What would we need in order to double the capacity?
Will other companies jump into this market with groundbreaking news or products any time soon? Or will we see new manufacturers that will offer things like 3rd party upgrades? For many years there have been several companies world wide that have made a living of doing rebuilds of engines. Like you get a rather low price if you buy your newly rebuild engine, build to factory spec and in return you must leave your old motor to them.
As batteries will hold value even when used - I assume there will companies that will jump into this market.
Maybe they have their own technology, maybe they license batteries from an independent factory or business partner. I could really see that there will be a market there. They provide EV owners with new and improved batteries - the customers pay and leave their old battery to the them to due with as they find best.
What do you think? Where will battery technology go in the next 5 years? How far can we drive in 5 years? Or how fast can we go?
