Hi, new poster here. Love the whole concept of the project. Waiting for a batch to become available that I can sign up for.
Probably like most, I’ve been reading about all the great new battery tech that is not-quite-ready yet. However, this one is interesting because they are currently manufacturing in low quantities for prototyping / integration whilst they are constructing their main automated production facilities.
They are quoting currently-available engergy densities of up to 400 Wh.Kg
I plugged their ‘ultralight’ cell specs into the excellent ‘OpenPPG Battery Comparison’ spreadsheet, and whilst that cell format is not ideal (low voltage, needing lots of cells), the flight times would still be pretty cool. Of course - no idea on cost.
Anyway, I’m wondering if anyone more experienced with the project (and battery design) thinks it is worth talking to these guys about building some ‘evaluation’ packs for OpenPPG?
