(Worthy News) – StoreDot, an Israeli company which develops extreme fast-charging (XFC) battery technology for electric vehicles, on Wednesday demonstrated its technology can now charge a full-scale electric vehicle battery cell in less than 10 minutes, the Times of Israel (TOI) reports.
Wednesday’s live public demonstration in Tel Aviv featured a 300×100 mm pouch cell produced by StoreDot’s Chinese partner, EVE Energy, which was charged under a 10-minute time limit, surpassing the company’s 0% to 80% capacity target, TOI said.
According to StoreDot, the cell maintained a charge rate that could add 100 miles of range every 5 minutes of charging.
In a statement, Wednesday StoreDot CEO Doron Myersdorf said: “Successfully proving StoreDot’s extreme fast-charging battery technology in front of a live audience demonstrates the complete confidence we have in our roadmap to deliver a global step-change in electric mobility.”
Founded in 2012, StoreDot hopes to eventually offer technology that can charge electric vehicles for 100 miles in five minutes by 2024, reducing to three minutes by 2028 and two minutes by 2032, TOI reports.
StoreDot has been developing its battery technology for three years and is supported by 12 patents in cell design, software, and a self-repairing system that allows batteries to charge while in use, TOI said.
