the EV Revolution in full swing right now.

You’re here (NASDAQ:TSLA) crossed the trillion dollar mark. Lucid (NASDAQ:LCID) just released its first cars with over 500 miles of range. Rivian (NASDAQ:BANK) just had the largest initial public offering (IPO) since Meta (NASDAQ:Facebook). Every automaker inherited – from Ford (NYSE:F), at GM (NYSE:GM), at volkswagen (OTCMKTS:VWAGY) — is investing tens of billions of dollars in the electrification of its fleets.

The EV revolution has arrived unequivocally.

But here’s the thing: the electric vehicle revolution won’t go to integrate until we do better batteries.

The harsh reality here is that while batteries make things work, today’s batteries prevent electric vehicles from performing as well as they could.

Sure, that sounds counterintuitive, but it’s absolutely true. And to understand why, we have to go back to chemistry class.

Batteries consist of three things – a cathode, a anode And one electrolyte. Batteries work by promoting the flow of ions between cathode and anode through the electrolyte.

Conventional lithium-ion batteries – which are currently the dominant status quo in smartphones, smartwatches, electric cars, etc. – are built on the chemistry of liquid batteries.

That is, they include a solid cathode and an anode with a liquid electrolyte solution connecting the two.

These batteries have worked wonders for years. But, due to the physical constraints associated with processing a liquid electrolyte, they are now reaching their limit in terms of energy cell density — which basically means that if we want our phones, watches and electric cars to last longer and charge faster, we need a fundamentally different battery.

Insert the solid state battery.

With solid-state batteries, the name pretty much says it all. Take the liquid electrolyte solution in conventional batteries. Compress it into a solid. Create a small, hyper-compact solid battery that – because it has no wasted space – lasts far longer and fresher far faster.

Of course, the implications of solid state battery chemistry are huge.

Solid-state batteries could be the key to keeping our phones powered for days, allowing our smartwatches to fully charge in seconds and, yes, allowing electric cars to travel thousands of miles without needing to recharge.

This is why solid-state batteries are dubbed by insiders as “batteries forever— and that’s why these permanent batteries are the essential technology needed to propel the electric vehicle revolution into its next phase of supercharged growth.

But making solid-state batteries is a complex and expensive science — and no one has figured out how to do it affordably or sustainably.

Until now.

Enter the Solid State Revolution

Several promising tech startups have made significant technical advancements in recent years in building viable and efficient solid-state batteries. One of them – QuantumScape (NYSE:QS) – basically solved the problem.

The biggest problem with solid-state batteries is what are called dendrites, which are small cracks that form in the solid electrolyte during charging and recharging that eventually grow so large that they short out the battery. The big breakthrough in solid-state batteries therefore lies in the development of a dendrite-resistant solid electrolyte material.

About a year ago, QuantumScape said it did just that and released internal test data that illustrated it. QuantumScape stock went from $10 to $130 in a matter of weeks.

But QuantumScape shares continued to tumble to $20 as investors began to question the legitimacy of the company’s internal data. After all, it had not yet been publicly verified by a third party. Maybe QuantumScape was exaggerating on its performance?

Those fears, however, subsided in recent months as QuantumScape released third-party test data that validated its internal data and largely underscored that indeed, QuantumScape has created small-scale solid-state batteries that work.

It’s truly amazing – it changes the world, even…

The big picture here is that technical advances in solid-state battery chemistry are not overstated. It is legitimate. That happens. And over the next few years, this emerging technology will forever change the electric vehicle industry – and, in fact, forever change the entire electronics world.

Some of the biggest stock market winners in the 2020s will be solid-state battery makers.

QuantumScape projects are among these mega-winners. But it won’t be the only one, and in fact, it won’t be the biggest winner.

On the contrary, this title is reserved for a small, completely unknown solid-state battery manufacturer whose shares are trading for less than $3 at present.

Less than $3 – and this company could potentially change the world in the next decade.

The upside potential of this small stock is huge – so big, in fact, that unlike QuantumScape, I can’t write its name in this post.

But I just did a presentation at the famed Hudson Theater in Southern California, where I spoke to a group of 60 people about this little tech stock.

And now, I’m going to pull back the curtains on this event and give you a front row seat to learn more about the tiny $3 action at the epicenter of the biggest tech revolution of our lifetime.
