Even as electric vehicles appear to be on the verge of going mainstream, there are at least two major roadblocks holding back the technology. One is the lack of charging infrastructure outside of cities, which makes long-distance travel impossible, or at least nerve-wracking. Another significant inconvenience is the amount of time is takes, sometimes hours, to charge electric vehicles.
The startup says that its batteries can provide unlimited charging and discharging cycles per day for a 20-year lifetime, a significant advantage over conventional energy storage.
electric powered cars
So much nonsense has been written about the method of charging batteries and missing the point altogether.people living in flats and streets with hundreds houses crammed together will have no means of charging their vehicles ,in effect they will be prohibited from owning a car if the future is all electric to the exclusion of petrol or derv.In an overcrowded country such as the UK electric cars will be useless,far better go for hydrogen power .
flywheels arrive again
This is the most significant re-emergence of 19th century technology, now again recognised as important in the 21st century. Thanks for helping the world.
