    yes I agree, it's not about Tesla really.

    I should have left them out of the original post really even though the title wasn't, as there seems to be a lot of emotion for some around them and particularly who may have bought a Tesla share or not.

    the key points on the positive seem to be

    -> getting the $/Kwh price down below 100 by getting expensive Cobalt and Nickel out

    -> longer battery life

    -> having a "residual" battery value for energy storage after the primary usage in vehicles

    I didn't know about extra weight makes sense.

    yes charging rates is another valid question - conspicuous by its absence in the information.

    Tesla is supposedly going to use these cells in future vehicles, not just in Chinese Market

    Panasonic will be ditched apparently and Korean giants are worried about market share as they will be too expensive

    Chinese have made huge improvements with lfp/lfmp cell to pack batteries

    200W/kg at pack level
    3c charging ( averages 2c at 0-100% )
    $80 per kWh at pack level
    3000 cycles to 70% @ 1c
    No liquid cooling needed

    60kWh, 300kg battery, 400km range, 0-100% 30min charge, 1 million km cycle life for under $5000 will be available in 2021

    Its costing more than double that right now when you include all the advanced liquid cooling and having to assemble the cells in the pack

    it's important to ask - do you own any Tesla shares? :D
