Tesla's new 2170 battery cell

As it turns out, Tesla, and its battery partner Panasonic, started production of cells for qualification at the plant in December, but today, it confirmed the start of “mass production” of the new battery cell, which will enable several of Tesla’s new products, including the Model 3.
The new cell is called ‘2170’ because it’s 21mm by 70mm. It’s thicker and taller than the previous cell that Tesla developed with Panasonic, which was in an ‘18650’ cell format.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been boasting about the new cell over the past few month. He said that it’s the “highest energy density cell in the world and also the cheapest”.

They went from making cars and rockets to batteries. Yawn. There are batteries powered by Tardigrade (aka water bears) that have infinite cell life. Congrats Tesla your about a decade behind in technology.

I wonder if the japan ease gang that silences free energy has also put pressure on this company. Why doesn't the tesla company, look into tesla's 4 battery switch?
The 4 battery switch, will never run out of power. People need to look into it, rather than just say its impossible. Tesla did make this to work, and the plans are out there.

Why did they not go bigger like size D or F (used in lantern 6 volt battery) or the large ignition cell? Fewer batteries means better reliability.

Only one freekin problem Elon, there are millions upon millions of devices built around the 18650 battery now everyone is going to have to redesign everything and what happens when you come up with a new different size battery tks. a lot. Panasonic just came out with a 2070 no freekin standards these days.

Batteries can not drive our world.All tesla batteries from the newest factories produced in one hundred years is still nothing in total global energy consumption.And efficiency sucks.

I love this. "Hey we made a cutting edge battery that puts out twice the power of the old high power battery" Oh wow that's amazing! How did you do that? "We made it larger." Genius! Truly genius. Hey starving kids in Africa. I know you're hungry. I know how to end your hunger. Just watt more than you were. You're welcome.

At 1:34, you said that they doubled the level of charge and the volume whereas the information at 1:00 seems to contradict you, saying that it is 1.33x and the dimensions only increased by 10%?

I hope Tesla get these batteries into laptops and other devices, battery life is the bane of modern technology so I support any company that strives to make cheaper and more efficient batteries.

Sometimes in business, something comes along that makes your product completely redundant. Check out:- " Tesla Forums Graphene batteries, 5 X energy density of best Li-Ion(Model S) this summer?          Submitted by nightwolf9ss on May 5, 2016 " These beauties have been fully certified to produce an energy density of over I kWhr. per kilo weight. Not only that but they are actually Graphene polymer super-capacitors. They are near 100% efficient compared to Chemical batteries, that struggle to reach 85% efficiency with charge discharge cycles. Lithium batteries will soon look perfectly ridiculous. as Graphene takes over. Graphene conducts electricity over a hundred times better than pure Silver. There is little wonder performance is so good, and bound to get even better soon.

Author Mrx1080 ( ago)
Why would they use these in their vehicles? You would lose a ton of energy through internal resistance with that many cells. I would have thought they were using some sort of proprietary cell with dimensions unique to the battery compartment (large cell rather then many tiny ones).

Author Walter Clark ( ago)
How can Tesla be proud of that stupid idea: They made the cell larger.

Volumes of the cells were incorrectly stated. The 18650 cell has a volume of 16 cm³ and the volume of the 2170 cell has a volume of 24 cm³. The ratio of a 50% increase is still correct.

Author apagoogoo ( ago)
i understand that cylinder casings are efficient, but i wonder why no one has innovated a hexagonal tube shape to reduce the space between the cells. the battery would take up a lot less room.
