what about the Fuel cell system?

”You drive an electric car but Fuel cell powered car seems to be the answer. Have you looked into Toyota Mirai?

yes, I did. Although my choice of driving Tesla is not just considering which technology is better, I have looked at the alternatives when I switched from ICE car to the new technology.

In my option, too, Fuel cell system (hydrogen) seems to make sense until you understand how it works. But then, why a mega company like Toyota is banking on the Hydrogen cell powered vehicle?

Toyota has kicked off with Prius which is a hybrid-powered of a traditional gas engine and Lipo batteries. It was a transition from ICE to Electric and they have pretty much dominated the market 15 years ago. Unfortunately, they didn’t continue developing Prius. If they have made Prius to 100% electric today, they have taken the lead and Tesla has never established back in 10 years ago. Toyota has been investing in Fuel Cell technology so much that they can’t back out at this time. My insights informed me that the decision to go with Fuel cell system is more political than anything else.

This video below pretty much thumbs up. Hope this helps : )

Tesla Caught fire with no reason?

Tesla Model S caught fire

Happened to a good friend of mine in China. It must be a terrifying experience for him. Media including twitters, youtubers are reporting as if it is their opportunity to get famous. But in short, it is grateful that no one got hurt.

I had a mixed feeling about this. I do know most of news I read including the person’s post are not always accurate. The car did not “just start fire” with no reason. With respect and love to my dear friend, let’s make sure to avoid something like this to happen in the future. I am sure Tesla team has been alerted and already taken an appropriate action to help the customer.

With that in mind, I would also like to be fair to both “Nay” viewers against Tesla and Tesla supporters including myself. If the same incident happens, he or she probably may not say anything that possibly caused the incident. Instead, you may hear something like this…

” I am an innocent, I have been taking care of my care inside-out. My Tesla just start firing with no reason”.

The facts:
My friend told me a few years ago that his Tesla got into an accident while he was on freeway in shanghai. His front and / or Rear got crashed by a car. He was saying he had to pay quite a lot to fix it.

The parking structure in China in general, a slope angle of a ramp isn’t sufficiently designed and built although they have adapted the US building code. I’ve seen so many cars scratching a bottom of a car which can be directly or indirectly damage the Tesla lower side structure. In order to flame LiPo batteries and its protection shield, you need to have some kind of a punctured opening into the core battery cell. It is very hard to manage such a damage or the battery will not fire up like the video shown.

Regardless, this is very rare occasion that I strongly believe we can learn from. Tesla can learn what the possible cause of the damage might be, the driver including myself can examine what we can do to avoid such a failure in the future. Not to mention a gasoline car has a gasoline tank which can be punctured and explored, an Electric car has a battery pack. It became a news because such it was extremely rare care, especially to the Tesla Electric vehicles.

In summary, I feel grateful that nobody got hurt. I also know with confident that Tesla will examine the possible cause of the damage and deliver the accurate and realistic report to us without fail.



車は理由もなく「ただ燃え始める」ということは不可能でありえない。自分は友人を尊重ししている。だからこそ、Teslaチームが常に警告を受け、顧客を助けるために適切な行動をとっていると確信しています。 それを念頭に置いて、テスラの「Nay」視聴者およびテスラ愛好家にも公平にこの記事を書こうと思いました。


事実: 友人は数年前、上海の高速道路で事故に遭ったことを私に伝えています。TESLA前部および/または後部は車に衝突され、大きなダメージだったといっていました。彼はそれを直すためにかなりのお金を払わなければならないと言っていました。
また、 中国の駐車場の構造は一般的に、ランプの傾斜角は、米国の建築基準に適合していますが、十分に設計され構築されていません。自分も多くの車がテスラの下部サイド構造を直接または間接的に損傷することができる車の底をかいているのを見ました。 LiPo電池とその保護シールドを燃やすには、コア電池セルに何らかの穴をあけておく必要があります。そのような損傷を実現するためには一般の使い方では非常に難しいです。さもなければ示されたビデオのようにバッテリーは起動しません。


テスラは被害の考えられる原因が何であったかを知ることができます、私自身を含む運転手はそのような失敗を避けるために私たちが何ができるかを調べることができます。言うまでもなく、ガソリン車はガソリンタンクがあり、萌えてしまった時間は度々あります。 度々ある事故だからニュースにはなりません。電気自動車はバッテリーパックが装備されています。そのようなニュース、特にテスラ電気自動車が非常にまれであるのでそれはニュースになります。私の友人の事件の状況を知るためにチームTeslaに連絡し、彼らがプロセスを促進するために何か援助があれば教えてくれと連絡しました。

Maxwell battery technology will bring 20% + energy density

Maxell battery technology will increase by approx. 20% of from the current Tesla’s battery. In short, the current lipo battery was developed from 1970s. Still very good though, the energy density, how fast they can be charged and discharged, how many times they can be ‘cycled’, most importantly how ‘safe’ they are… are one of many determined factors to debut in the market. Yes, there are thousands of “tech companies” claim one’s battery technology can revolutionalize the industry, yet we have not seen any ‘break-through / practical solution’ in 2019 at this moment. No doubt, Tesla currently owns the #1 battery technology in the world “by far”. I am thrilled to hear that they have decided to acquire this small company in California.

What does it mean to us?

For geeks and nerds to learn about their technology, you can read the extensive report there. (pdf file). http://www.powersourcesconference.com/Power%20Sources%202018%20Digest/docs/3-1.pdf



マクセルのバッテリー技術は現在のテスラバッテリーと比較すると「20%」のパフォーマン増加。 最新技術の分野で以前のバージョン(一般常識)から20%向上することはダイアル電話からスマートフォーンが登場したようなもの。

現在のリポバッテリー(LiPo)技術は1970年代から開発されている。バッテリーが一般に使えるようになるためには、エネルギー密度、どれくらいの速さで充電および放電できるか、何回サイクルできるか、最も重要なのはそれらがどれぐらい安全であるかということを立証する必要がある。 当然、電池技術が業界に革命を起こすことができると主張する「テクノロジー企業」は何千とある。 でも、現時点2019年に「突破口/実用的な解決策」は今までまだ見たことがなかった。 Teslaは現在、世界一のバッテリー技術を「はるかに」所有していまるから、マクセル社を買収するという知らせはこの会社がもつ技術が本当であるということを証明するニュースだと思う。
