A solid-state battery is a battery technology that uses solid electrodes and a solid electrolyte, instead of the liquid or polymer gel electrolytes found in lithium-ion or lithium polymer batteries. ... Solid-state batteries have found use in pacemakers, RFID and wearable devices.
Do you think solid-state battery will be able to break R350,000 local automotive segment or EV's will remain above R500,000 locally?
And will solid-state battery be used for solar system too or lithium-ion and lithium polymer will remain dominate in that market?
What is your understanding of this battery technology can we have plant here that assemble solid-state battery or the country don't have necessary skills?
"The cell chemistry of all-solid state cells is in general the same as of liquid electrolyte cells. Anode materials comprise carbon, titanates, Li-alloys and metallic lithium; cathode materials are Li-based oxides (LCO, NCA), and phosphates (LFP), vanadium oxide [51] and future microstructural 5 V materials"
