    Hey, how's the progress going? I hear the inventor of the lithium ion battery has come up with a design for a solid state li-ion battery. Any thoughts about this? I remember you doing the pva solid electrolyte.

  • DaveDeathRay

    This is very interest mate I can't help but wonder what sort of battery/ performance would you end up with if you cut loads of little circles out in the same way and stack as may as you can into say a AA battery? or other cylindrical type of battery C or D type? might be worth a try, just a thought :-)

    Nice, I'll take 30 kilowatt hours worth, if they last 40 years and cost $1 per watt hour (or less), delivered to SE QLD Australia, because that is what I recall a large house scale nickel iron battery bank costs from SDS power equipment.
    Oh and if you can handle a megawatt hour scale order I hear that South Australia are in the market. ;-)

    • Robert Murray-Smith

      yeah - i over looked that too lol - nice one mate - it shows how I don't think things through.I am pretty sure I can compete - hmmmm

    • Daniel Matthews
      Daniel Matthews Год назад

      But that is for a 40 year life span, so if lithium lasts 1/10th of that then over the same life span lithium is more like $1.28, then there is the recycling costs on the shorter lived technologies. People often overlook that, like they do the insurance you need on solar PV to cover storm damage risk. Anyway I was giving you a ball park figure for a completed installation ready to plug in. I guess my point is, if you can compete when taking into account all of the relevant variables there is a demand, and it is growing rapidly.

    • Robert Murray-Smith
      Robert Murray-Smith  Год назад

      $1 per watt hour is really expensive mate - are you sure you got that right? - Lithium Ion only costs12.8 cents per watt hour and lead acid is only 10 cents per watt hour

    Content and presentation of these videos is top class! Great job Mr. Smith! I am not a specialist in field of electrochemistry but I have a question related to LiFePO4 cell. Is it possible to regenerate such cell by recoating the negative electrode with clean graphite layer? I know that electrolyte for these cells cost 160$ for 1kg but if cost would not be a barrier? When I recently disassembled one of these dead cells I got an impression that it is only negative electrode that gets deteriorated. Correct me please if I am wrong. I am just a hobbyst so I might be completely wrong about that.

    • Kapalek84

      Ok once more thank you for checking out this idea!

    • Robert Murray-Smith
      Robert Murray-Smith  Год назад +1

      yeah i suppose i haven't thought about it much until now so let me have a mull over lol

    • Kapalek84
      Kapalek84 Год назад

      That would be really interesting! Maybe just for the sake of test this expensive electrolyte could be replaced with some cheaper type

    • Robert Murray-Smith
      Robert Murray-Smith  Год назад +1

      I suppose i could give it a go

    • Kapalek84
      Kapalek84 Год назад

      Thank you for reply. So just to confirm regenerating the negative electrode graphite should be sufficient? Positive electrode layer does not degrade as fast as negative? Maybe graphene coat on negative electrode would be even better? Would you be able to make a video about this process?

      Was thinking the same. Maybe Rob's been toying with the various copycats and is skipping phases 1/2/3/4 and launching with phase 5, having already started researching phase 9 that weighs 5kgs and powers a whole house for a fortnight :-). I've a number of applications here that have been shelved until power storage and delivery advanced enough, and then also the usual suspects/candidates for direct replacements with better batteries. Holding off on an off-grid house that needs about $25k worth of currently available generation/storage.

    Robert, you might be interested in what this guy has done ruclip.com/video/K-PkoJrs5n8/видео.html its some kind of electrically conducting foam. I know how you always want us to try things and such. But I think you might be interested. To increase surface are for energy storage I've been thinking that a dense but thin foam would be great. you can maintain the thickness constant by using glass beads across plates.
    1) mix beads into your paint

    Hi Robert. hey, can regular chewing gum also produce graphene from graphite by smearing it on graphite and then stretching it mixing it in? wouldn't the graphite sort of pull away and mix into the gum as the gum gets deformed? So I was thinking if a highly permeated gum would create a good flexible conducting plate or cathode. maybe you don't need that sticky tape, just a gum dispenser making squares from a 3d printer onto your sheets.

    This is getting into some similar manufacturing processes that i've played around with. What i learned was that craft and scrapbooking hobbies have a LOT of cheap stuff that's useful for this:
    - Small hand-held paper punches come in various patterns and designs, very cheap, and are in every craft store, toy stores, ebay basically everywhere. You'll be sure to find relevant shapes. They can cut out thin transparency material and foil.
    - There's relatively cheap USB "Cutting plotters" that are made for cutting paper designs for scrapbooking, they can also cut thin transparency material. A company called "Silhouette" makes a lot of them but there's probably others.
    - You can also get small die cutting and embossing presses, which press a whole sheet of paper/transparency against a pre-existing stencil/die to form or cut a pattern. They're basically like a very small & cheap printing press. There's various manufacturers of these like "Cuttlebug" and "Big shot", and they're so simple you can generally use any die with any machine.
    - You can also use common household chemicals to etch patterns/designs from any thin material. But this is getting a bit too complex to explain in a single bullet point (there's just so many ways to do it).

    If you offered some sort of short coarse on battery making it would be the best thing since sliced bread. I know that's kind of what you are doing but have you heard of Hugh Piggot? He wrote a book on making wind turbines from scratch and he's been running a coarse in Scoraig, Scotland for years now. If you did a battery one it would be the perfect match.

    On a side note - Would grafoil sheet work as the collector plates? Or too porous?
    Just thinking of alternatives to some sheet metals?
    Maybe too difficult to seal properly.
    I know I know - Give it a go for myself! ;@)
    Thanks for another great set of videos Rob!

    • Robert Murray-Smith

    Very interesting. Fumes from laser redepositing on mylar will be troublesome.

    What I love most about your channel, is that I always learn more than what you are teaching. Like this video, after I watched it, and the other bipolar battery videos, I had a very enjoyable research gorge.
    I started by looking up different methods for making them already in place, and ended by trying to find out if two dissimilar metals can be wrung together, as in gauge blocks.
    I'm actually pretty certain that you could, but I'm willing to bet that the added steps and material needed would be worth whatever benefits there would be gained by wringing your two plates together.
    Anyway, thanks for the videos, and the wikibinge that usually follows!
