Maxwell Technologies

Just wondering what people think about Maxwell Technologies? Did Tesla buy them for their dry lithium tech or supercapacitor tech, its people or any combination?

  • My guess would be for both, considering Elon’s past interests in supercapacitors in the 90’s. However, if their dry electrode technology really works on a large scale, that could potentially be game-changing if only for the cost-savings in not having to use solvents.
