Because according to the company, global automakers still have to consider temporary technologies in the medium term, such as semi-solid batteries.
“Right now, despite some bullish claims by our competitors, all-solid-state batteries are still at least 10 years away,” said Dr Doron Myersdorf, CEO of StoreDot in a press release.

This solid-state battery is claimed to enable fast and safe charging that is cost-effective, with high energy density for users.
But still in the process, Myersdorf said there are still significant challenges to be faced before it can be produced on a large scale.
Solid-state batteries use solid electrolytes instead of the liquid electrolytes or polymer gels found in current technologies such as lithium-ion or lithium polymer batteries.
“We believe a more practical step would be the introduction of a semi-solid-state battery that we are targeting for mass production by 2028,” he continued.
This semi-solid-state battery is claimed to be a state-of-the-art, safe, high-performance cell that can reach 100 miles of charge in just three minutes.
These cells are now shipped in pouch format to global automotive OEM partner StoreDot for intense real-world testing and demonstrate the promised ‘100in5’ EV performance, allowing the driver to charge 100 miles sequentially for every 5 minutes of charge.
