How Solid-State EV Batteries May Lick the Fast-Charging Degradation Problem

Solid-state batteries hold a lot of promises for EVs, of reduced complexity, increased safety, and less degradation when repeatedly subjected to fast charging. QuantumScape data indicates its solid-state batteries—after 400 cycles of 10 to 80 percent fast charging (the equivalent of covering 160,000 miles)—retain over 80 percent of their capacity. Some analysts question the robustness … Read more
