A Scientist Answers Your Battery Questions

December 26th, 2012 by  

After announcing a big EV battery research project on December 1, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) let us know about a Q&A opportunity with one of its scientists regarding batteries. After collecting a number of questions, Berkeley Lab battery scientist Venkat Srinivasan answered several of these questions. Here’s the video:

Dr. Srinivasan may still answer questions you have about batteries if you post them in the comments of the video above. If you’ve got some, head on over there and type away!

      Now, do you can locate your Caps Lock key and punch it off?

        Hehe. Was understandably disappointed with our beloved CT editors, blowing off a little steam, sorry.

          The site is run by humans and we know that they sometimes err.

          Constructive criticism is always welcomed. Catching mistakes very helpful. I think you’d be hard put to find another site where the head cheese is as good about making corrections to posts.

          If you’ve got an oversupply of steam perhaps you should obtain a turbine and sell some electricity to the grid….

      I let the video keep running and the battery dude was the 3rd one.

    • Apologies. Apparently, I initially used the link to the channel instead of the link to the video.
