So much to post I’ll have to come back when I have more time.

QuantumScape is focused on Lithium-metal instead of Lithium-ION batteries. Lithium metal (and I would like someone to verify this) allows for higher energy density to weight ratio.

From what I have read so far this technology has an anticipated 500 mile range for an EV with a recharge to 80% within 15 minutes.

I think I have read about other battery ventures working toward this distance and recharge time as well but QuantumScape is fully focused on an ASSB (All Solid-State Battery) which has less to no potential to ignited when they short circuit than a battery using a semi liquid electrolyte as current lithium-ion batteries in all of their variants do.

According their the 4th Q 2020 results earnings call:

“We believe we are the only player to have shown a solid-state lithium-metal single layer building block capable of meeting the key requirements of long cycle life, high current density and unelevated temperatures
