Henrik Fisker may not have the best track record as far as success goes, but you’ve got to hand it to the man for having an incredible reach and drive, for that matter. It can be hard to believe what the man puts out there sometimes. Take his new battery, for instance. We’re talking about 500 miles in range, one-minute charging times, and even better cold-weather conductivity. Well, it’s time to start believing him. He’s joined the fight to build a usable solid-state battery alongside even global brands like Toyota and, where Toyota sees plenty of struggle, Fisker is elbow deep in lithium putting in the work himself, as evidenced by a tweet of him holding a massive, but light, core of Lithium metal – the barebone of juice for every electric car on the road today.
But that’s not all. Fisker scientists have apparently produced samples of solid-state bulk that can deliver 2.5 times the energy and works as low as -31 degrees Fahrenheit. See that bulk sample, the first battery label, and the infamous image of the man himself holding up that Lithium metal below.
