    Considering that the Aptera is likely to be charged once a week or less, the number of charge cycles you can obtain out of the battery is not very important. 1500 cycles would equal 30 years of operation or 500,000 miles with a 40KWH battery. Shelf life is going to be more important. And that’s not considering the built-in solar charging. If you only charge once a month anyway, it’s irrelevant what battery technology they end up using. Weight and size become the dominant factors.
