Smart Batteries to Radically Boost Output, Service Life
For the last several weeks, I've been writing to you about a young tech company that's turning the electric motor market upside down with the first major evolution of the device in almost 200 years.
Even though this company's market capitalization is barely $20 million, its patented "smart motor" has effectively made every electric motor and power generator in service today obsolete by changing the way power is distributed within the power coil.
It's an amazing innovation, with far-reaching implications that affect a spectrum of industries ranging from automobile to cell phone makers.
On the day after Christmas, however, I spent some time on the phone with an inventor whose patents this company recently acquired, and I'm shocked to say that my already lofty expectations rose several levels higher.
This inventor, whose name I cannot divulge here, is based in Norway, a nation where the secondhand electric vehicle market is among the largest in the world.
One of the greatest challenges to this market, he explained, was the uncertainty of battery life.
You see, something few people understand is that unlike most modern electronic components, batteries do not have an easily predictable lifespan.
A Smart Battery for a Maturing Market
The reason is that individual cells within a battery each degrade at their own rate.
The variables dictating this rate are largely organic and at this point cannot be reliably controlled during manufacturing.
When looking at an entire battery array (a typical battery array in a Tesla vehicle, for example, contains more than 7,000 cells), the range of degradation between the healthiest cell and the weakest cell can be enormous... and this leads to problems when it comes to things like service life and resell value.
Simply put, even two identical products, used in similar environments for similar lengths of time, will not age the same.
The solution, just as in the case of the smart motors, was to apply complex AI algorithms to track the degradation in real time and manage power input accordingly.
By changing the workload assigned to each individual cell, depending on that cell's relative "health," a single battery array can last much longer than the conventional systems standard today.
Safer, Stronger, More Efficient, and Longer-Lasting
Batteries will not only last longer before a total replacement is required, but they will also provide more output between charges in day-to-day usage, require less maintenance over time, and experience a much lower rate of catastrophic failure.
That means in the future, you'll be seeing fewer news headlines about cell phones and electric cars bursting into flames, and you'll also notice that the waste produced in the manufacturing of new batteries, as well as the disposal of old ones, will radically decrease.
All in all, we could be looking at a 7–10% increase in efficiency for the entire system — more than enough to consign every existing "dumb battery" to the pages of history.
For a company that's already made substantial progress in getting its smart motors out into the market, this development is truly game changing.
And the best part is that the batteries and the motors will be able to work together as a unit to compound the advantages into even greater improvements over today's benchmark products.

David Versus Goliath All Over Again
For companies like Tesla, Mercedes, and Chevy, who are betting their futures on the electric vehicle market, this means playing a necessary game of catch-up just to stay competitive.
But for shareholders of this company, it means perhaps one of the greatest investment opportunities of a lifetime just got better.
For investors still considering entry, the timing right now is about as good as it can get.
We're now into the new year. Tax-loss selling is over... and shares of this company can still be had for a great bargain.
The report I recently completed on this tech firm has been out for a few weeks now and is starting to make its presence felt within the investment community.
I urge you to check it out now, before this latest development really puts things into overdrive.
