Best Hand says:

Well, ultracapacitors have big advantages and disadvantages also. They can be very fast charged and discharged, nothing limits the speed of charge basically, at least not internal structure or chemistry. They can work in very low and high temperature. They can basically live forever and are very reliable. But they can hold much less energy/weight than even batteries. So for now I cannot see how “combine” battery and ultracapacitors may bring anything. If energy/weight coefficient will be close to the battery it will open very bright future though.

Peter Michailidis says:

I love your channel. I always learn something new and I love your interpretation of news that comes out from Tesla. Great insight.

Ricky Smith says:

What does Negative Brian think since he couldn’t make the video this time?

Roger Starkey says:

Tesla just patented s new cell!!
I DON’T think it’s related to Maxwell!

Ayo Deveneaux says:

Brian, you hit it right on the nail. Parallel the caps and this should increase the longevity of the battery since they’ll take the heavy charge/discharge stress off the batteries

Fart Smeller says:

I think they will use a much smaller battery say 90% supercapacitors 10% battery.. probably cheaper to make supercapacitors then batteries, so lower-cost. You could charge up to 90% in a matter of moments. Then as needed small capacitors would discharge instantly into the battery recharging it just as needed. Capacitors can be recharged more times than batteries.. make for a super cheap battery to replace years and years down the road.. this is going to work perfect for grid storage also

greymatter2525 says:

Maxwell also has about $70 million in cash which tesla will be getting after closing on the deal. They are basically only paying $140 million for the company

Mitchell Barnow says:

We’re definitely going to see 400-500 mile range electric cars in a few years. It’s the only way that electrics can go for full adoption. Superchargers will be able to zap charge these new cars because they will store power in their capacitors. My Model 3 is going to be so obsolete within five years. I’m hoping that the battery pack could be changed economically by then.

TRY to HELP you says:

dude, what is crazy is that the 1.9s 0-60 is with the current tech, cells only. I think you may find that these super capacitors may crest the 400wh per kg and they can finally make a plane…. crossing fingers for that!

lessdeth69 says:

The Maxwell tech appears to provide better performance in all respects: degradation, energy density, weight, price. No need to come up with a hybrid Maxwell plus 2170 or 18650 energy storage device. Tesla will likely move to incorporate some elements of Maxwell’s tech homogeneously throughout a future pack.

Laurentiu Trifan says:

Now, a good idea would be … to buy an EMR measurement device … and measure the level of electromagnetical radiations in that Tesla 3 … and compare it with the level in a “fossil” car. After that … buy some foils of lead (stomathological clinics know where to buy such a product) … and cover all the car floor … and the motor compartment. And continue this covering until the level of EMR is safe. It will save you … from some nasty cancers. Maybe the rest of the family, also, will benefit from that. Good luck 🙂 https://www.saferemr.com/2014/07/shouldnt-hybrid-and-electric-cars-be-re.html

Missing Piece says:

Hybrid battery FoSo, they will act as a buffer or a surge protector. May even have a SC that could put like 30 miles on the car in 30 seconds, V3?

AIR Studio says:

gosh ! i love the footage

5OO846 says:

Don’t forget about the energy business!!!. Ultracaps in stationary storage could create an amazing grid stability service. Especially at the small scale like consumer powerwalls. The 50,000 powerwalls installed in South Australia would create an exceptional distributed stability system that would easily remediate demand and oversupply blackouts.

Russell Fine Arts says:

Tesla bought Maxwell for their dry cell batteries and that’s about it. Ultracaps are relatively simple and have been around for many years and are great for regen storage, to quickly send power on to the battery pack but dry cell/solid-state is the future of batteries, no doubt, as they can be recharged in several minutes and offer 2-3 times the capacity with virtually no degradation. EV’s will never become mainstream without rapid (10-15 min.) recharge and 400+ mile range, along with comparable selling prices as ICE cares. Maxwell battery tech can make this happen.

Ivan Karpenko says:

@i1Tesla Hit me up on FB. Have a video suggestion for ya if you’re interested.

Nixter_is_Nick says:

I remember seeing an internet article about Tesla patenting a hybrid battery pack just like you talked about, it will probably first be used in the new Roadster.

Yali Zhu says:

I think the capacitor is the way to go. Capacitor to lithium ion battery is going to be just like SSD to HD in the computer. No chemical, no wear charging and discharging !

Mohamed Abdouni says:

Not sure why I just want to punch your face when I look at it.

Tibor Z says:

I don’t think you can merge the 2 technology into physically one product. Batteries are chemical energy storages and ultracapacitors are storing energy between the metal plates. There is no chemical reaction.

Steven Barrett says:

Maybe this is the missing link, meld a battery to a super capacitor, good thinking!

George Hawley says:

Wikipedia has a nice article on Ultracapacitors: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supercapacitor

MrGonzonator says:

Nah man, it’s the dry electrode tech that Elon wants. Eliminates cobalt and at least doubles energy density if it all works as they say it should.

ermiller271 says:

Coffee powered capacitors?

George Hawley says:

Brian: before we get too excited about ultra capacitors, let’s see what Elon has in mind. They charge and discharge much more rapidly than lithium ion cells but they have much lower energy density. Tesla cars probably go fast enough now but lithium cells have to be cooled when releasing energy at a high rate and ultracaps don’t. Some sort of hybrid design, maybe capturing regen energy more efficiently, is possible. Don’t know.

Mitchell Barnow says:

Your upcoming track day sounds like an amazing event! Have fun at Tesla’s Supercharger test drive event with the SE3&X

Stephan says:

What time will they start in Burlington?

1mikechung says:

We would like to connect our vertical wind turbine to it

Ricky Smith says:

I’m interested to know what Tesla thinks in Solid-state Batteries. I honestly think Solid-state Batteries have a advantage. I wish all three technologies would combine for the future of Battery Technology.

Hung Tran says:

Finally Elon wakes up, someone told him ultracaps made no different, the guy was clueless
i already seen how much it helps batteries as i was using just good old cap in car audio back in 90s

Look at Skeleton technology, a good interview by Robert at Fully charged, using graphene in their ultracaps which able to provide 50km per quick charge as public transportation are using in France and China for both buses and charging stations.
Saved batteries wear and tear by at least twice as long, and can handle extreme cold temp.
This is exciting news

Arnis says:

Now it is possible to design battery pack busbars to be thinner (up to 150kW rate for DC charging). Any peak jolt can be extracted from ultracap bank.

Ed says:

Cold weather can temporarily cut EV range by more than 40 percent
We knew this was an issue, but testing quantifies it — the main culprit: cabin heat

Tobi2471990 says:

Brian do you recommend a special car rental for a German guy like me for vacation in LA, CA? Just turo? I need to test the Model 3 🙂
