Technical Specification Of Tesla car Battery

Tesla, Inc. (formerly Tesla Motors) is an American automaker, energy storage company, and solar panel manufacturer based in Palo Alto, California.Founded in 2003, the company specializes in electric cars, lithium-ion battery energy storage, and residential photovoltaic panels (through the subsidiary company SolarCity). The additional products Tesla sells include the Tesla Powerwall and Powerpack batteries, solar panels and solar roof tiles.

Car Battery: 

An electric-vehicle battery (EVB) or traction battery is a battery used to power the propulsion of battery electric vehicles (BEVs). Vehicle batteries are usually a secondary (rechargeable) battery. Traction batteries are used in forklifts, electric Golf carts, riding floor scrubbers, electric motorcycles, full-size electric cars, trucks, vans, and other electric vehicles.

Lithium-ion (and similar lithium polymer) batteries, widely known via their use in laptops and consumer electronics, dominate the most recent group of EVs in development. The traditional lithium-ion chemistry involves a lithium cobalt oxide cathode and a graphite anode. This yields cells with an impressive 200+ Wh/kg energy density[6] and good power density, and 80 to 90% charge/discharge efficiency. The downsides of traditional lithium-ion batteries include short cycle lives (hundreds to a few thousand charge cycles) and significant degradation with age. The cathode is also somewhat toxic. Also, traditional lithium-ion batteries can pose a fire safety risk if punctured or charged improperly.

The Tesla Roadster (2008) uses “blades” of traditional lithium-ion “laptop battery” cells that can be replaced individually as needed.

  1. do you have any current informaiton or specification sheets on the current battery cells that tesla is using in each of their models. What is the published recharge time and energy (watt hours/liter) of these batteries?

  2. Just wanted to know how the TESLA CHARGER works.

    Does each TESLA car have built in DIODES to take AC power from the charging station, and charge the battery (after the car diodes rectify the AC voltage) ?

    or does every charging station provide AC electricity, passes it thru its charging station diodes, and only provides the car battery with DC voltage for charging ?
