For this particular new tabless electrode, CEO Elon Musk said on Twitter that this technology is "way more important than it sounds" without explaining more.
"We have seen an inflection point in interest for utility level storage, primarily driven by progress in reducing costs," the company said.
And the new glass battery promises to accelerate the shift away from internal combustion engines because it will deliver a significant increase in storage capacity.
It takes a lot of abuse to get a cell to explode, but it's possible.
As Helen Czerski asks, nuclear fusion energy has been forty years away for the last 70 odd years. Are we getting any closer, Helen visits First Light Fusion in Oxfordshire.
In this episode of Fully Charged News, Robert Llewellyn starts out remaining neutral about the Tesla Cybertruck launch, discusses the new Ford Mustang electric car then tries not to get too ranty about Cobalt use in refining fossil fuels and the prob

The Tesla kept pace with the Bullitt, even edging slightly ahead in between shifts (the electric car's acceleration being entirely linear).
Swiss company Innolith claims that an electric vehicle equipped with its lithium battery would run for up to 600 miles (966 km.) That level of performance blows its Tesla counterpart away
Imagine if you will a lightweight, inexpensive power source with 9 times the energy density of a lithium-ion battery. Got your mind wrapped around that concept?
Tesla Model 3 production can only go as fast as the slowest part of the entire supply chain and production process. For months, the battery module line was their main production bottleneck.
This is an easy-to-make ionic liquid or deep eutectic solvent that I've made. Basically it's Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate heptahydrate) and glycerin/glycerol in a 1:3 molar ratio.
The gigafactory will cost Tesla up to $5 billion to build. It will produce 35 GWh/yr in battery cells and 50 GWh/yr in battery packs. Expansion plans are targeting 105 GWh of annual capacity by 2020.
The most difficult problem with off-grid living, solar, and wind power systems is the batteries. Traditional lead batteries are cheap but low quality and die quickly in the cold. What if a battery existed that could run for 100 years, run in any kind
Some Tesla observers are convinced that it will be a battery, based on the design that powers the company's automobiles, yet large enough to keep the lights on at a home.
