StoreDot will open a facility in California to accelerate the development of its semi-solid state batteries

The next generation battery company, StoreDot, already announced that it will open a new center in Irvine (California, USA), as part of its global expansion process. This will be the company’s first site on US soil, and will help the company accelerate development of its semi-solid-state batteries and research into battery materials.

The US team of researchers is led by Global Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. David Lee. Dr. Lee and his team will work in collaboration with StoreDot’s R&D headquarters in Israel. Lee said:

“With test program activity increasing around the world, the opening of our new R&D innovation center in the US is further evidence of our rapid expansion. Now that we have an operational base in the US, we are looking to leverage the world-class talent pool here to drive development of our leading XFC technology and its future generations.

It is an honor to lead this team that will work closely with our headquarters in Israel and bring new skills and scientific capabilities to the company as we expand our business and transition to mass production.”


Previously, we have already talked to you on several occasions about StoreDot, a promising company supported by big manufacturers like Daimler, Volvo/PolestarVinFast y Ola Electric., which aims to launch its so-called cells ‘100in5’ by 2024, capable of adding 160 km of autonomy in just 5 minutes of charging (and later ‘100in4’, ‘100in3’ and ‘100in2’, which as the name suggests, mark charge times from 5 minutes down to 4.3 and 2 minutes, respectively, with plans to reach the last milestone for 2032).

StoreDot also announced last year a breakthrough in the performance of its technology by delivering cells that exceeded 1,000 cycles in the production-ready EV form factor. StoreDot’s XFC batteries and systems are currently in test programs with various manufacturers of electric vehicles. These batteries are also offering a new feature such as the ability to self-repairin case any cell does not work properly.

At the end of last year 2022, StoreDot raised its voice and its CEO assured that there are still 10 years left to mass-produce solid-state batterieswhich is why, according to Doron Myersdorf, manufacturers worldwide “They should consider intermediate technologies in the medium term, such as semi-solid batteries.”
