That's not what I have heard in practice
I have no idea, and no interest in searching, since it's a pointless comparison as I mentioned.
Strange. I thought that was what the discussion was about? If it's not about price, and you didn't seem to worry about weight, then what is the discussion about?
the general consensus is that Tesla pays around $180/kwh, or 18c per Wh for their NCA cells, (LiNiCoAlO2). Cheap enough for you?
I dare say that's what the general consensus is. But if *I* can buy NiMH at that sort of rate, what is that price translated into quantity?
I like the idea of small cell NCA. I'd tend to believe the chemistry is robust to cycling. But I don't rate its reliability for large packs.
The point is .... something you have missed .... my choice of what I want
. You can carry on forcing me to accept what you say, and it's arguing apples for oranges because all I want is choice. Maybe I'll screw that up and pick the wrong battery type. OK. Then let me! Market should decide. Them's the rules of real capitalism.
