Just read this article…can you imagine if even the new Core battery technology is eclipsed??? Especially if it happens soon! Here’s hoping Bosch jumps on it.

That some super interesting batteries there. Recharges in minuets and last 3 times longer run time.April 10, 2017 at 2:25 pm #621184ReflectorPro
At first I thought that article was a late April 1st thing with the name of the guy, but apparently its real. I can’t find any more details but here’s the article from the university that he’s at:

@Dabbs @ChadM looks like we have 2 of these threads going????? Maybe they could become one???

Kind of looks like another battery revolution coming. Let’s just hope the licensing will not present obstacles to implementation.
“This research is supported by UT Austin, but there are no grants associated with this work. The UT Austin Office of Technology Commercialization is actively negotiating license agreements with multiple companies engaged in a variety of battery-related industry segments.”
BE the change you want to see.

It’s just a matter of time before every tool is battery powered. Something like this can make it possible. It’s funny when I tell fellow carpenters that cords are on there way out and soon every too will run off batteries, they think I am kidding but this kinda stuff makes it seem like that is coming sooner than later.April 10, 2017 at 3:52 pm #621196
Yes I received that email article this morning also, very interesting,April 10, 2017 at 4:52 pm #email@example.comModeratorOwatonna, MN - Minnesota
I really like the ability for my phone to go days without charging and the ability to charge a battery in a couple of minutes.April 10, 2017 at 5:31 pm #621215roninohioProNew Franklin, OH
Sounds like good things coming in the battery world.
I like that they are cheaper also. Seems like the batteries cost more than the tools. Hope Bosch keeps up with the new technology .April 10, 2017 at 6:49 pm #621221SorpaProPierrefonds, Qc
Forget power tools and phones. Think about cars. That solid state would be quite a revolution.April 10, 2017 at 8:08 pm #621242
Read the article and all I can say is wow! That will be the game changer they mention if and when it arrives. The recharge time and amount of storage is the exciting part.April 10, 2017 at 10:22 pm #621258cmeyer25ProBellingham, WA
@sorpa that’s a good point – driverless cars that run on tiny cheap(er) batteries would be an incredible innovation, but making batteries smaller, cheaper, and more powerful will be a break through in all fields. I’m just waiting for the caveats though. If it’s really this revolutionary though, it won’t be long before the big companies are pumping stuff out that utilize it.

That is going to be absolutely amazing, for the same amount of space you can triple your battery power.April 11, 2017 at 5:15 am #621296theamcguyProFayetteville, NC

Right the manufacturers are looking for ways to reduce weight and the solid state battery would be perfect. If it is viable they will invest a lot of money in it.

This is the battery technology that got me intrigued. Aluminum batteries.April 11, 2017 at 5:36 am #621303
Im just impressed with how many new techs are being researched. At least one will bear fruit, amd possibly more. Maybe one. Tech will be battery life, and another will be discharge rate, or charge speed. We live in exciting timesApril 11, 2017 at 7:04 am #621328TopNotchProelmwood park, NJ
I read about the conductive abilities with seawater in the past, impressive.
Plus think about the airplanes and ability to lower cost. Huge

I really don’t think that will happen anytime soon. At least out here where all our lumber is wet PT stuff.April 11, 2017 at 11:23 am #621398jkirkModeratorhalifax, nova scotia
this is definitely cool tech.. i look forward to seeing where it will go.. it sort of reminds me of the first iron man movie where tony stark ” robert downey jr” creates a self replenishing power source.. i.e the core in in his chest which powers his suit
heres a tip, dont fart in a space suit
