CAP-XX Acquires Murata's Supercapacitor Production Lines

CAP-XX announced it will acquire CAP-XX licensee Murata's supercapacitor production lines, relocate them from Japan to a new factory in Sydney to arrive in stages between March and June 2020, and begin producing Murata's three supercapacitor product families in Q3 2020. Murata will also assist in introducing CAP-XX to its customers.

Lamborghini and MIT Patent a New Technology for Supercapacitors

Lamborghini and MIT Patent a New Technology for Supercapacitors

The collaboration between Automobili Lamborghini and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has produced a major initial result: a patent for an innovative synthetic material that will serve as the technological base for a new generation of supercapacitors.

New type of electrolyte could enhance supercapacitor performance

New type of electrolyte could enhance supercapacitor performance

Supercapacitors, electrical devices that store and release energy, need a layer of electrolyte — an electrically conductive material that can be solid, liquid, or somewhere in between. Now, researchers have developed a novel class of liquids that may open up new possibilities for improving the efficiency and stability of such devices while reducing their flammability.

Electric Car Tipping Point Will Delight and Destroy

Electric Car Tipping Point Will Delight and Destroy

It is nonsense to forecast pure electric cars costing the same as traditional ones, then life continuing much as usual. The up-front price of pure electric cars will be dropping below that of internal combustion engine ones around 2025. The fundamentals are now clear. Short range electric cars will continue to sell badly because of range and financial anxiety: their resale value after three years can be down 80%. 200 miles/ 320 km is the tipping point where resale value can be only 40% down on purchase price. See the IDTechEx report, "Electric Vehicles 2020-2030" for the full picture of 100 categories of electric vehicle EV by land, water and air.

Future of Heavy Duty EV Motors Off Road

Future of Heavy Duty EV Motors Off Road

Fork lift trucks are almost all induction because reliability and affordability trump performance here. Their batteries are rapidly going lithium-ion for something less toxic and nearer to fit-and-forget but there is no similar issue with the motors.
