“Cargo” division of Daimler AG invested $ 60 million in Israeli startup StoreDot, which is developing “organic” batteries with fast charging. Funds will be directed to the implementation of technology into mass production. StoreDot technology is the creation of semiconductor nano-crystals, the basis for which are peptides. The company claims that they have developed a battery pack with a capacity of 75 kilowatt-hours will fully charge in five minutes and provides the mileage of up to 480 kilometers. More about the technology is not known, but it should be gone by 2022.
