As reported by Bloomberg, Tesla has acquired the innovative energy storage company Maxwell Technologies for $ 218 million. The move is a direct deviation from Tesla's current energy storage requirements; Instead of relying on lithium battery technology, this acquisition can signal a change in capacitor technology.
The key figure for capacitors, either super or ultra variant, is the much shorter charge and emission rates. Where a super capacitor can be used to weld metal by simply connecting terminals (not doing so, by the way), battery technology has not yet come up. You can only charge the batteries at a certain speed and you can only charge them at a certain speed. The acquisition of an ultracapacitor manufacturer opens the possibility for these power plants to find their way to electric vehicles.
Although there is a simple problem with super and ultra capacitors ̵
