Despite the Claims, the EEStor Powered Vehicle Will Likely Never Become Reality

Despite the Claims, the EEStor Powered Vehicle Will Likely Never Become Reality

I’ll be upfront and truthful by saying it’s my personal belief that there’s no light at the end of the tunnel for ZENN or EEStor, but others certainly disagree.

ZENN

ZENN

Therefore, I’ll present this post without my beliefs interfering.

Here goes…

That sure was easy.  No bias from me there.

The news to me here is that ZENN / EESTOR still exist! I thought they went under years ago…

Everything is Zenn… the Eestory continues…

My question is, if this is a ‘technical press release’, why is there no information regarding Dielectric Losses (Dissipation factor, or power factor) and voltage withstand capability, performance changes with temperature, or other pertainent data? It just sounds like “Some guy was going to do some testing 3 weeks ago”.

Zenn is in the process of acquiring EEStor. There is some prospect of there being some value in the technology even if the current capacitors don’t work, but I’m very doubtful.

I wish I knew what ZENN was thinking when they went off the deep end with this EESTOR purchase. If it were my company and money on the line, I’d want proof that the stuff actually WORKED before sinking everything into it.

I wish EESTOR would go away. They are one of those stories that fills people up with false hopes and unrealistic expectations.

Shocking that independent tests didn’t go well. About as viable as a Hydrogen car only less viable.

In other news, the earth is round and water is wet.

Those are facts. EESTOR is fantasy.

Which is exactly why I linked those statements to the headline “EEStor Hits Snag as Independent Ultracapacitor Tests Don’t Go Well”. One could have predicted this result in advance.

Itttt’s aliiiive!!!!

EEstor, Keeping the dream alive. 🙂

This story may not be over yet. Let’s see if Zenn completes purchase of controlling interest in EEstor. If they do, why did they do it?

Such disappointing news! Well I’m not giving up hope. Someday I will fly about in my Skycar powered by EEstor batteries!

What is a “layer”. Is it a term of art meaning “capacitor”?

Did Mr Evans test an eestor capacitor?
