But Tesla charger device it's about 50% the price of their battery, if I remamber well a interview of a scientist.

Your point it's interesting. I can't explain it. That's why I will send the doubts to her.
Even if it had identical energy density as a Tesla battery, but could be rapidly recharged and not suffer degradation, that's all the industry needs.

Who cares what the range of an EV is as long as it can go about 200 miles and be rapidly recharged without damaging it. That actually solves the biggest problems. Cost being another big problem. $10,000 for what is essentially a gas tank is a hard pill to swallow.
