As the world becomes more electrified, the race is on to build cheaper, longer-lasting, more energy-dense batteries. One of the most promising technologies in this space is the solid state battery, developed by an absolute legend in the battery world, one of the inventors of the lithium ion battery and recent Nobel Prize winner John B. Goodenough.

Great video Joe. I´ve searched through your links but couldn't find your numbers on the energy density being 2.2 to 5 times as high. Could I get your source for that?

solid state battery + drones = hive mind swarm of drones solid state battery + darpa humanoid robots + 5G wireless charging = terminator 'ss' battery? illuminati confirmed
Couldn’t the battery have been used to start fires.

FIVE bloody minutes of waffling and he is maybe just now starting to approach the Click Bait video title. Sheesh, that is 5 minutes I can never get back.

It's already been proven that those Bagdad batteries were used as some kind of sexual stimulators. They found several rods inside the pelvises of female skeletons in bathhouses along with seeds from aphrodisiacs.

Hold up, 'differently abled people'? The hell does that mean? I'm assuming that means disabled because of the accompanying footage...but who decided to make up an asinine term like 'differently abled'? Is it out of some misguided attempt to spare their feelings or some shit? Is this the same mentality where instead of calling me 'black' some hippie American would call me a 'person of colour'? As if they are some colourless motherfuckers or something? Are you a 'person without colour'? This is retarded.

"Death of the internal combustion engine": There's still more of a people/culture barrier unless charge times can match the 5-10 minutes it takes to fill a gas tank. A little forethought and planning could remove the issue, but people will always see the worst-case scenario. "What if I'm driving cross-country? I don't want to have to stop for 30 minutes just to charge." Of course you could just charge up when you stop for lunch, and that should get you enough range to get through a normal day of driving, but "what if I'm just going through the drive through and only stopping for bathroom breaks?" So until we can fully charge in the same time it takes to fill a gas tank, the internal combustion engine will never be truly dead.

I like gasoline powered vehicles, they give you unlimited driving freedom with fill-ups that take but a few minutes, gas = freedom.

6:20 is when he finally starts talking about solid state batteries. Unless you want to hear about the history of batteries...

Joe, you should do a video on Iron Flow batteries and if they're potentially any better for storing renewable energy than large banks of lithium ion.

Great content, but the end of the internal combustion engine? The idea will be bought out and shut down as soon as it threatens the petroleum industry

The likely explanation of the Baghdad battery is brilliant, and the acknowledgement of the cathode and anode flipping is hysterical…. but Goodenough is the man, the real Tony Stark.... Thx
