Almost a year into his new research partnership with Tesla, battery
researcher Jeff Dahn has been hitting the talk circuit presenting some
of his team’s recent progress. We reported last week on his talk at the International Battery Seminar from March and now we have a talk from him at MIT this week.
He went into details about why Tesla decided to work with his team
and hire one of his graduate students, but he also announced that they
have developed cells that can double the lifetime of the batteries in
Tesla’s products – 4 years ahead of schedule.
