    QuantumScape update: Solid-state cells will cut EV charging time in half and increase volumetric density over 50% https://electrek.co/2022/04/26/quantumscape-updates-q1-2022-report-includes-new-16-layer-solid-state-cell-and-scaled-manufacturing/amp/

    In these choppy financial waters it’s worth noting that QuantumScape’s CEO has publicly stated they have sufficient capital to fund them to production.

    I ask again, does anyone really believe that DARPA and these prestigious Academic and Research organizations below would select QuantumScape as an industrial scale up partner, if they did not have solid science behind their solid state platform? The science is real my friends and QuantumScape has assembled a great production leadership to give them the best chance of scaling to production.

    QuantumScape even impressed Tesla cofounder and former CTO JB Straubel who joined the board.
    Straubel, who has tested basically every battery cell technology while at Tesla, commented:
    QuantumScape’s solid-state anode-less design represents the most elegant architecture I’ve seen for a lithium-based battery system, and the company has an opportunity to redefine the battery landscape

    U do what is best for your money ..
    I watched tsla in the early day , trading between $15-22.. and I ignored ..
    I will give QS two years to see how it pans out ..

    DARPA has selected six teams of industry and university researchers for the Morphogenic Interfaces (MINT) program. MINT aims to enhance the performance and persistence of batteries, anti-corrosion coatings, and other electrochemical systems that power and protect critical Department of Defense hardware and platforms: https://www.cmu.edu/energy/rectify/

    This is pretty big news in my opinion. as QuantUmscape and 24M are industrial scale-up partners for this project that is lead by Venkat Viswanathan who is a scientific adviser to QuantumScape. Both QS and 24M company logos are on the site.

    Fact is QuantumScape has not released any news to say they will not meet their 2022 Goals so for me it's business as usual and onwards to A cell news!

    Deep Partnership with Volkswagen Group
    VW and QS have partnered since 2012
    ◼ Representation on the QS board of directors
    ◼ Formed 50/50 JV to accelerate commercialization of QS’
    solid-state batteries, with capacity ramping to 21 GWh/yr
    ◼ Close collaboration with VW Battery Center of Excellence
    ◼ VW has tested multiple generations of QS cells and has
    publicly validated performance at automotive power levels
    ◼ Non-Exclusive: VW has first priority to cells, but allows QS to
    explore commercial opportunities with other partners

    QS - Expect revenue in 2023?
    1) JS on 1/28/22 (Yahoo Finance): Commercial cells will have a few dozen layers (previously: several dozen layers).
    2) Electrek/German Manager Magazin on 3/28/22: News about Porche 911 & QS deal.
    3) CFO on 4/26/22 (Q1 Call): C-cell = commercial cell. Currently targetting C-cells from QS-0.
    4) JS on 4/26/22 (Q1 Call): Get C-cells from QS-0.
    5) Q1 Letter: 2022 represents an inflection point in this process, and we believe we have shown that our long-term execution strategy is beginning to yield results.
    6) JS on 4/27/22 (Bloomberg Summit): Current 16-layer cell capacity is more than 1Ah and is close to Tesla's original 18650 cell capacity of 2-4Ah.
    7) JS on 5/2/22 (Twitter): A-sample to have 2-4 dozen layers.

    My take: Revenue from QS-0 in 2023 - earlier than QS-1 / 2024-25.
    All signs point to early commercialization and revenue than currently being forecast by the markets.

    QS vs SLDP:
    Volkswagen has invested $300 million in QuantumScape, a solid-state battery company also backed by Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, aiming to bring the batteries to production by the middle of this decade (2025).
    Ford and BMW led a $130 million investment round in a Colorado solid-state battery start-up called Solid Power, hoping to debut the technology around 2027.

    "While Sanders says “no companies have a significant leadership position,” he identifies six companies that Avicenne considers to be further along the solid-state development curve than others: 24M Technologies, Ionic Materials, QuantumScape, Solid Power (pictured, below), SolidEnergy Systems and Toyota"

    Investors will decide for themselves but of the six companies that Sanders identified in the solid state space my opinion is Quantumscape may surprise to the upside and to deliver a production solid state battery platform. Note 24M is a private company.
