CATL unveils battery that may power electric airplanes and 1000km-range EVs


CATL unveils battery that may power electric airplanes and 1000km-range EVs:

https://www.abc.net.au/news/science/2023-05-03/catl-announces-battery-to-make-electric-aviation-possible/102289310

At a recent Shanghai auto expo, the world's largest battery maker unveiled a battery it claimed could power electric aircraft or propel electric vehicles (EVs) beyond 1,000 kilometres on a single charge.

Most EV batteries have a specific energy of under 300Wh/kg.

CATL says its new battery almost doubles that figure, with a specific energy of 500Wh/kg.

We are living in interesting times, Dorian

I did read (some years ago), that new and better types of batteries will appear, when there is a market for better (than old lead acid) batteries, and this seems to be happening

I also read that some vehicle manufactures, were going to spend something like $30 billion, on EV battery research

I did read recently, that there is at least one battery, (in the laboratory), which claimed 700Wh/kg, but not every laboratory battery, will be good enough to be manufactured

Time will tell how good the CATL battery is, but CATL do seem to be a reputably battery manufacturer
