Tesla's new 2170 battery cell

  • Опубликовано: 23 янв 2017
  • As it turns out, Tesla, and its battery partner Panasonic, started production of cells for qualification at the plant in December, but today, it confirmed the start of “mass production” of the new battery cell, which will enable several of Tesla’s new products, including the Model 3.
    The new cell is called ‘2170’ because it’s 21mm by 70mm. It’s thicker and taller than the previous cell that Tesla developed with Panasonic, which was in an ‘18650’ cell format.
    Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been boasting about the new cell over the past few month. He said that it’s the “highest energy density cell in the world and also the cheapest”.

    You’ve got your units off. It’s milliamp-hour. Not miliamp. One is current, the other is energy.

    the volume lost between cells should aslo be taken into account, as larger diameter means more space between the cells.

    Nikola Tesla was about harnessing free natural energy not bottling it and selling it,he had all the patients to harness free energy for everyone this back in the1890s,
    you were bold enough to take his name so why haven't you followed up his work.....

    I couldn't find any proof of such capacity. I found confirmed 21700 specs and did the math and both 18650 and 21700 batteries have the exact same energy density of about 13.5 mA/mm^2. You are fake news, why is this even in my feed.

    The capacity of batteries is measured in mAh (or Ah), not mA... Amperes are the unit of current. It's like saying that the speed of a car is 50km, it doesn't make sense either.

    The United States Department of Justice Justice News Department of Justice Office of Public Affairs FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Thursday, February 10, 2011Tyson Foods Inc. Agrees to Pay $4 Million Criminal Penalty to Resolve Foreign Bribery Allegations
    WASHINGTON - Tyson Foods Inc. has agreed to pay a $4 million criminal penalty to resolve an investigation into improper payments by company representatives to government-employed inspection veterinarians in Mexico, announced Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer of the Criminal Division and James W. McJunkin, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office. “Tyson Foods used false books and sham jobs to hide bribe payments made to publicly-employed meat processing plant inspectors in Mexico,” said Assistant Attorney General Breuer. “The penalty and resolution announced today reflect the company’s disclosure of this conduct, its cooperation with the government’s investigation and its commitment to implementing enhanced controls.” A criminal information filed in U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia in connection with a deferred prosecution agreement charges Tyson with conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and with violating the FCPA. Tyson, which is headquartered in Springdale, Ark., produces prepared food products. As part of a deferred prosecution agreement with the department, Tyson acknowledged responsibility for the actions of its subsidiaries, employees and agents who made improper payments to government-employed veterinarians who inspected two of its chicken processing plants in Gomez Palacio, Mexico. Any company that exports meat products from Mexico must participate in an inspection program, supervised by the Mexican Department of Agriculture. According to court documents, the inspection program at each facility is supervised by an on-site veterinarian employed by the government of Mexico to ensure that all exports conform to Mexican health and safety laws. According to documents filed in court, Tyson’s Mexican subsidiary, Tyson de Mexico, paid approximately $90,000 between 2004 and 2006, to two publicly-employed veterinarians who inspected its Mexican plants, resulting in profits of approximately $880,000. The payments were made both directly to the veterinarians and indirectly through their wives, who Tyson de Mexico listed on its payroll, although neither performed any services for Tyson. According to court documents, the bribe payments were made to keep the veterinarians from disrupting the operations of the meat-production facilities. When payments to the spouses were terminated in 2004, Tyson representatives agreed to increase the amount paid to the veterinarians to match the amount previously paid to their spouses. The agreement requires that Tyson pay a $4 million penalty, implement rigorous internal controls, and cooperate fully with the department. The agreement recognizes Tyson’s voluntary disclosure and thorough self-investigation of the underlying conduct. If Tyson abides by the terms of the agreement for the two-year term, the department will dismiss the criminal information. In a related matter, Tyson reached a settlement today with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, under which it agreed to pay more than $1.2 million in disgorgement of profits, including pre-judgment interest. This case is being prosecuted by Trial Attorney Kathleen M Hamann of the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section and investigated by the FBI’s Washington Field Office.

    yawn... nothing revolutionary going on here. They made a bigger battery to get bigger storage. Now, if they managed to create another material that can store a higher capacity, charge faster, be environmentally safe to dispose and is abundant then that would be a breakthrough. This is just a bigger, heavier battery.

    Wouldn't you agree it's stupid to start manufacture of few millimeters bigger cell when the 18650 is just becoming to its popularity in flashlights and every kind of products such as powerdrill batteries and so on.
    They would have significant price advantage with the 18650 battery cell, which is 10€ a piece in local store 2017.
    If tesla would understand about the weight of the battery they would make the cell much bigger. Tho the collision safety with every 2170 fused with those separate hair light fuses must be good >> if

    PS: It is NOT 2170 it is 21700. 18650 = 18mm x 65mm and the last 0 means round style. So 21700 = 21mm x 70mm and the last 0 again meaning round style. Lastly, they have been on the market for awhile now as most Vapor / e-cig users can attest. 18650 has been the industry standard for a long time. 20700 & 21700 are beginning to gain popularity due to their ability to handle higher Amperage / Storage. Guess they are just new to Tesla at this point.
