Not necessarily - gas cylinders is a good example, with plastic ones becoming available that are interchangeable in appliances with the same standard that existed for many years.

With batteries the standard only needs to cover the output interface and mounting points, the internals can be changed. And given the interface will no-doubt be smart (like USB), even the various capacities/limits don't need to be fixed in the standard, only the mechanism for communicating between the car and the battery.

I believe your view on batteries as only "things to plug in" is very simplistic and not in line with reality.
Maybe true for a battery pack to top up your phone. Not for a car battery.



German car manufacturers are learning this, too, by the hard way, that a battery is more than something that outputs voltage and amps.


Not all of the valuation of Tesla at the stock exchange is a bubble.
