    there's too much money going into solid state batteries. So it's not going to happen now but I suspect in 5 years we will see it finally get to limited production. Remember, not that long ago, nobody thought the current battery technology would be possible and here it is. Exciting times to see these advancements.

    From the Battery show: During the Leaders Roundtable on solid-state battery technology, Brian Sisk, vice-president of battery cell development at A123 Systems announced that the company would be building a prototype manufacturing facility at its Romulus, Michigan battery plant. The facility was originally expected to be closed and sold, however the company has now decided to use it to jump-start its solid-state battery efforts. A123 is working with Massachusetts-based Ionic Materials, whose polymer-based solid electrolyte will be used with graphite anodes and metal oxide cathodes. Sisk told Design News that the solid-state batteries can be built on commonly-used battery manufacturing equipment and that prototypes will be available for OEM testing before then end of the year.

    Also:

    “Our chairman has said that we will have solid-state battery powered vehicles at the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.”

    Solid Power just went into limited production for EVs... They are in the process of ramping up production now.

    You got to be careful. Limited production is not production. It's like when space guy got the first FUV, we all had a big party because they were in production.
