Samsung SDI made a significant announcement at InterBattery 2024, unveiling its novel all-solid-state battery (ASB), indicating a new era in energy storage technology. According to the company, the ASB features an impressive energy density of 900Wh/L, setting a new standard in the industry while pushing the boundaries of possibility in battery technology.

As part of the announcement, Samsung SDI outlined a new roadmap for the mass production of ASB by 2027 and, at the same time, ensuring efficiency and reliability. Leveraging proprietary solid electrolyte and anode-less technologies, the company claims to revolutionize the battery market with unparalleled energy density and longevity.

"Our preparations for mass-producing next-generation products of various form factors such as all solid-state battery are well underway as we are set to lead the global battery market with our unrivalled 'super-gap' technology," stated President and CEO of Samsung SDI Yoon-ho Choi.

Samsung SDI plans to extend the lifespan of its batteries to over 20 years by 2029, doubling the current industry standard. Advancements in all-solid-state battery (ASB) technology hold the potential to revolutionize several industries, each benefiting from the unique advantages offered by this next-generation energy storage solution.

ASB for electric vehicles (EVs)

Solid-state batteries have long been hailed as a game-changer for electric vehicles due to their higher energy density, faster charging capabilities, and improved safety since they can significantly reduce the risk of fire associated with traditional lithium-ion batteries. With ASB, EV manufacturers could overcome some of the key limitations of current lithium-ion batteries, such as range anxiety and lengthy charging times.

ASB for consumer electronics

The consumer electronics industry stands to benefit greatly from the adoption of solid-state batteries. Devices such as smartphones, laptops, and wearables would see improvements in battery life, durability, and safety. Longer-lasting batteries mean fewer charges over the lifespan of a device, reducing environmental impact and enhancing user convenience. Additionally, faster charging times could transform the way consumers interact with their devices, enabling quick top-ups on the go without lengthy downtimes.
