Yeah, no joke.
I had two 6Ds when I ran movie theatres here in Miami, for AMC.
They were intimidating back then.
Skull crushers, I called them.
Just imagine a battrry pack of like this (1:24 minute) but 8 cells inside each oval bar of bike triangle frame and two of them will make 16 series cells. (16x3.7=59.2V)
It's also possible to custom made carbon fiber triangle frame box. In this case, battery pack can be replaced when needed.
We are getting close to two seatter Ebike with long range.
Absolutely agree. I am quite sure Tesla 4860 battery will never get to the public.I doubt this size will ever be a base point of an EDC but for GP lights, lanterns, S&R, bike & headlamps running a remote battery pack, size becomes much less of an issue. Still those together are not a huge market segment but there is a market.
I'm at a real loss why so many media outlets have reported 9-10Ah capacity for the 4680 cell - such a tiny capacity for that much cell volume would result in a crippling hit to range for a BEV. The 4680 cell will likely clock in at around 25Ah if its energy density is in the neighborhood of the 18650 and 21700 cells Tesla is presently using:This means that you can only get 7000 mah out of a 10,000 mah single cell, and 9200 mah out of 3 cells with a good buck driver.
All the features that Tesla gushed about in the 4680 do indeed speak to greater current-handling characteristics. But that factor cannot come at a significant hit to energy density.+
Tesla went with the 4680 only because it can charge faster, nothing else.
That is the biggest factor in EV,,, how fast can it recharge.
