Battery Technology – Is there such a thing as Moore’s Law for batteries?
Recently there have been pretty good headlines about EVs again: Volkswagen, BMW, Volvo, GM, and of course Tesla! In related discussion, people often point to Moore’s Law and how battery performance would follow that same progress as computer chips since the 1960s. But is this true?

Exciting times, join the discussion, …
