  • *Excellent* interview. You got a great guest and let him talk and give his own long answers. Some interviewers interrupt with small questions just to show how smart they are. You didn't. Thanks. So glad you landed Sandy - I love hearing that guy talk. I've been watching a lot of stuff since battery day, and even saw Sandy on Autoline's livestream, but he wasn't able to talk like this. I definitely learned some things here I didn't elsewhere.

  • I like this video for several reasons, first because my father worked with and around automotive supply chains for the bulk of his career, and I am literally a DELCO baby, he finished his career at CTS corporation's Brownsville / Matamoros operation. I went on my first factory visits with him while he was at a division of Electrolux (Kent), including a major battery producer (Lead Acid/ large heady duty batteries to last entire 8 hour shifts for the floor cleaning machines).

  • Using rectified 380 or 440 3 phase AC lands you in the 600 volt DC ball park without major problems. Using 800v will require more high power components, and waste energy or special transformers. The grid does not care what voltage you use its unrelated to the load Power = Volts times Amps. Anything above 100v is going to kill you anyway at the currents used in battery's or chargers. What is the current set up design used by Tesla for super chargers and what safety procedures are in place ?

  • I like Sandy. People gave him some heat before but everything he said made sense to me. I value his judgment as a result and it’s sad too me that whatever circumstances resulted in the creation of someone like Sandy, they don’t seem to exist anymore... or at least not nearly so much. I’m much younger but I know old school honest people like Sandy are the best people. People like Sandy worth fighting for, when it really comes down to it, as a society and so circumstances got to change because things getting too weird. Also, being willing to show vulnerability emotionally is important to have a genuinely objective back and forth conversation in my opinion. Young people more and more are being socialised online and are taught to never show any because it leaves you wide open to abuse from anyone, from any where in the world. It’s all attack, attack, attack as a result and that’s a shame because objectivity requires some detachment from ones own subjectivity which, normally would come about in real life social situations by the practice of being reasonable to other people. It’s also very difficult or perhaps impossible to form deep connections with others and have true friendships while being unwilling to show some vulnerability. I think Sandy seems upset under the surface by how a certain demographic of the online community has treated him for some of the objective (IMO) things he said. This is a completely understandable and normal reaction for someone like Sandy. Bare in mind that the people who attacked Sandy are not, for the most part, willing to show any vulnerability and also that their subjectivity is far more dominant for them than it is for Sandy because of it. What this means, is that the objective truth matters to Sandy and has value in and of itself but this is not so for a lot of people who have spent a lot of their spare time during childhood online. This is due to a lack of accountability for their actions online, compounded by the extremely hostile environment that has resulted from it. My conclusion is that kids should be encouraged more to go outside, climb trees and socially interact with one another because then there’s real consequences and real accountability.

  • Good evening. I randomly bought 955 shares today of CBAT because it was the only stock that was moving up from all the EV stocks I’m watching. I just had some surplus funds in my Robinhood and so I put it all to work. Then I saw the big jump and I started researching why. I couldn’t find anything anywhere....until I found this lonely random article dated 09/28/20: “CBAK Energy has Successfully Developed Large-sized Cylindrical Tabless Battery with 25% Boost in Energy Density and 20% Cost Saving”. What the?! Do you know what that means?! This is HUGE! As far as I know, Tesla is the only one that developed a tabless battery design. Googled around “tabless battery” and the only thing Google returns is about Tesla. On Tesla Battery Day all they talk about is their “tabless battery design” and how it is a game changer for them. Now I stumble across CBAK Energy doing the same?! Look into this for me and tell me where my thinking is wrong. According to the article, “CBAK Energy Technology, Inc. ("CBAK Energy",NASDAQ: CBAT), a world's leading lithium-ion battery provider”...wow. The worlds leading!!! Let me know what you think. Have a good night.

  • Meanwhile ICE engines are always getting better, body shells become lighter. No batteries, no recharging wait, fuel found everywhere. Tesla is good for people on very good wages, everyone else will use the ICE. The money dumped into tesla and share price is based on money they expect to make in 10 years time.

  • Sandy simple formula tells you that when you double the voltage you cut in half the amperage. Power = voltage x amps, for 40 kW motor your amperage will be 50 amps vs 100 amps for 400 volts So you are right!!! it is right direction, and I bet you semi will be using 800 volts system as the will need around 160 kW of power at 60 MPH, 200 AMPS current draw.

  • Some people want to get rid of petroleum, but have no alternative to replace it with. Fast transportation is ingrained in our society. We're not going back to sailboats to get from the USA to Europe. We're not going to get rid of jet airplanes. Automobiles, trains, trucks, and planes are not going away. Period. Petroleum is not going away anytime soon. Period. Plastics are made from petroleum. Look around and try to manufacture everything around us without using plastic. It's not happening in the near future. I'm happy with improvements and changes happening at a reasonable rate and improving our lives at the same time. Look at all of the space based industry popping up all over the world. Look at how many companies are developing electric and hybrid cars and trucks. In the next twenty years we will witness a huge change in our lives. I can't wait to see batteries that have no cobalt, electric cars and large cargo transport vehicles that are quiet, and especially electric cars that we can afford. We're finally moving into a new era that will be bigger than when ICE's were invented. The last 100 years have been dirty, but it moved us to this new era. Internal combustion engines aren't the enemy, they're the ancestor that got us to this new era. Great video. Thanks.

  • Excellent summary. Miss the analysis of the impact over the Tesla semi, yeah a drop in battery cost and an increase in production will allow to produce a $25K car, but on the semi case the most important factor is not the drop in battery price but in battery KW/kg. This news put the semi 20 or 30% closer to compete with diesel, and that is a huge stake, once it penetrate the trucking industry Tesla will be unstoppable.

We see this all the time, and you would think he would know better at his age, when people get like this; be very skeptical. Yes it is a significant improvement, but the end of ICE cars?

  • Re saving the planet California bullshit. A few facts, 94% of global warming has nothing to do with man, cars or anything. It’s H2O in the form of gas. Put simply,clouds! The remaining 6 % is not entirely man made. CO2, Natural Gas (methane) and a few other gasses make up this remaining 6%. We can not stop volcano’s spewing methane, or decomposition. Cows are an utter irrelevance. So what percentage of global warming is man responsible for? What percentage of the total. Something less than 1 percent! Now why do you never get this info from the IPCC? The IPCC is a campaigning political body inside the U.N. Their mandate restricts them to consider only man made global warming. They ignore everything else. They also manipulate data. This is indisputable. They call it “modelling” so raw data is altered. From this and this alone comes the global warming (now climate change) alarm and mass hysteria. Now if what they have been saying for over 20 years were true, how come not one single prediction of theirs has ever come true? Not one. This must scream “error” but they just change the danger window. Gore said all ice caps would be gone by 2015. Example. This was repeated around the world in every left wing school. They also under Obama received billions in research dollars and the result ? Nothing. The most laughable accidental experiment which proves my point? The pandemic shut down almost all aviation, almost all cars, for months. Right, just what the alarmists wanted. This should have produced a slight measurable reduction in global temperature. Think about it, the alarmist got everything they ever dreamed of, for free. Notice the utter silence from this lobby group. Had there been a measurable reduction this would have been trumpeted from every roof top. But please note total silence. As for California? I say let technology drive the change not legislation. So stop repeating the climate bullshit it’s like a virus.

  • Sandy is right in that: 1) you don't need a 500-mile range and 2) the real benefit of greater energy density and a lighter, structural, battery is the ability to build a lighter vehicle (which in itself will greatly improve range).The only time range becomes an issue is going cross-country. And then range is dictated by bladder, belly, kids, safety considerations (rest), as mentioned. Here in the UK, on the motorway, you're talking about 150 miles, maybe more but not much. So your first recharge en route needs to take you that far again. Given that you're not going to risk planning a stop much below 20% and it's not worth hanging around beyond 80%, a 60% charge needs to give that sort of range, in winter, too. But that's all. I believe the new 77kWh VW ID.4 is designed round this fact and therefore hits a sweet spot. If Uncle Elon could build the same car, to the same quality, but with a structurally integrated, lighter battery (of perhaps no more than 70kWh), he would indeed be home and dry.

  • Tesla didn't have mass production before they did. They didn't have a functional electric car before they did. They didn't have any real competition either. And that is the difference. Every new car company or old car company looking to enter into EV market has competition: Tesla. People don't seem to understand that not only can Tesla build the most advanced EVs. They can also build the cheapest EVs. Competition inherent value is scrap value + brand value - liabilities - how much money on net they are going to spend before the end. Market value is purely speculative. Battery day? Doomsday more like. GG.
