Tesla Battery Pack Construction
Today we will know about Tesla`s lithium ion batteries construction and will answer the question “What inside a Tesla Battery?”.
Tesla cars works solely by the electrical charge stored in special batteries. These Battery are name BEV`s. It means Battery Electric Vehicles. British scientists were propose the first ideas talking about using Lithium ion battery in the 1970.
When you see this battery you are thinking that it`s very simple device, because it consist of three basic elements as two electrodes, the positive cathode and the negative anode and electrolyte between it.
How a rechargeable lithium ion battery works?
Tesla Battery has 18650 cells which using in the Models S and X cars. Small battery cells as AA cells are 18 mm in diameter and 65 mm tall. Tesla is yielding most long-lived, reliable performance in the today automotive environment. The most popular battery pack today supplied by Tesla contains 7,104 18650 cells in 16 444 cell modules capable of storing up to 85 kWh of energy. Tesla engineers every time reconfigure the internals of the battery pack to save more enrgy enabling to enjoy a range of more long distance.
