The fastest charging Polestar wants, 160 km of range in just 5 minutes

Although electric vehicles are becoming more and more popular, and many people recognize that electric vehicles are the general trend, these cannot alleviate the current problem of electric vehicles-people's anxiety about charging and mileage. Worrying about finding a place to charge, not wanting to spend too much time charging… These have become common concerns for those who want to choose an electric car and those who have already chosen an electric car.

If you want electric vehicles to go deeper into people's lives, you have to solve this problem. Automotive brand Polestar recently announced an investment in Israeli battery manufacturer StoreDot.

The purpose of the partnership is also clear, to explore how StoreDot's ultra-fast charging technology can be used in future Polestar vehicles.

Israel-based StoreDot is developing silicon-based, extremely fast-charging batteries for electric vehicles. The company’s goal is to mass-produce batteries for electric vehicles by 2024, with a range of 160 kilometers on a five-minute charge.

To create Extremely Fast Charging (XFC) batteries, StoreDot fuses organic chemistry, nanotechnology and artificial intelligence to maximize energy use, revolutionizing traditional lithium-ion batteries with patented organic and inorganic compounds, offering electric batteries that can be manufactured on standard production lines car battery.

StoreDot uses patented active material nanoparticles to replace traditional lithium-ion graphite anodes, and high-efficiency active materials synthesized from breakthrough nano-scale silicon and proprietary small-molecule organic compounds can withstand volume expansion and energy decay during battery charging.

The nanoparticles also accelerate ion diffusion, enabling fast, safe and stable charging. To increase the energy density of batteries through XFC, StoreDot discovered a way to generate a low-resistance ionic flow between battery electrodes, introducing a mixed solid solution with electrode-specific mixed electrolytes to achieve maximum rate.

Rigorous machine learning and AI-based data science cannot be ignored in the development of StoreDot.

In addition to harnessing the power of artificial intelligence to evaluate massive amounts of data and build models at breakneck speed to speed up the R&D process and pinpoint the right material formulation, these AI infrastructures also provide real-time monitoring of battery health, combined with safety alerts, to improve Cycle life and overall EV (electric vehicle) range.

At the 2022 EcoMotion Week show in Israel, StoreDot demonstrated a test that could charge a full-size electric vehicle (EV) battery for 100 miles in 5 minutes. This test also further verified StoreDot's "100inX" (100 miles of battery life in X minutes) strategic technology roadmap.

According to this roadmap, the StoreDot can go 100 miles (about 160 kilometers) on a charge in 5 minutes, reducing this time to 3 minutes in 2028, and maybe 2 minutes by 2032.

As part of the partnership with Polestar, StoreDot will apply its own technology to proof-of-concept Polestar electric vehicles, such as customizing StoreDot's battery technology for Polestar vehicles, enabling faster charging and improved cycleability.

If the plan goes well, perhaps by 2026, StoreDot will put supercharged batteries in Polestar's cars, and people will be able to experience the feeling of using supercharged to eliminate anxiety in Polestar's new cars.
