I’m going to share with you a one sentence description of our future.
Are you ready?
Better batteries will make everything better.
I realize there is a lot more to our future than batteries. And I realize this idea isn’t being taught in philosophy or sociology classes. But it should be discussed in business and finance classes because the opportunity is enormous.
Not too far in our future, everything will be mobile and unplugged. So when I say better batteries will make everything better, that’s exactly what I mean.
Computers. Tablets. Phones. Smart homes. Smart cities. Medical devices. Cars. Even airplanes!
The above picture is from EasyJet, which expects to test electric airplanes as soon as this year.
Today’s phones and cars – and all the other amazing electric devices in the world – use batteries that are in the Stone Age in comparison to their computing power, wireless connectivity, and software.
The only way these innovations will happen is with improved battery technology.
Better batteries will improve productivity and spark economic growth around the world. Companies leading the way will make a ton of money. Smart investors who own those companies will, too.
That’s why the list of corporations racing to develop the next-generation battery is full of household names and reads like a who’s who of global giants. It’s also getting bigger every day.
Just last week, Toyota and Panasonic announced a partnership to create batteries for electric vehicles (EVs), which will become the biggest user of next-generation batteries. The new venture will also supply other automakers, including Mazda and Subaru. And keep in mind that Panasonic is already a partner with Tesla in its battery gigafactory in Nevada.
All of the world’s biggest automakers – General Motors… Ford… Toyota… BMW… Volkswagen… Honda… Mitsubishi… Mercedes… Nissan… Hyundai… Audi… Porsche – are spearheading projects to get next-generation batteries into their fleets as soon as possible.
These automotive giants are about to unload millions of electric vehicles on the global car market in the next several years.
Volkswagen, the largest automaker in the world, is going all in on all-electric cars, planning to be mostly electric by 2022.
Even truck heavyweight Ford is investing $11 BILLION in electrification, with Chairman Bill Ford saying, “We’re all in now.”
To them, the writing is on the wall.
It’s either embrace the revolution or become obsolete.
And it’s more than just automakers…
Last week, Apple hired the former head of Samsung’s battery division. He not only helped develop lithium battery packs but was also involved with next-generation battery technology.
Caterpillar, the world’s leading construction equipment company, is aiming to adopt electric power as well for its trucks, diggers, and excavation equipment.
One look at that list and it’s easy to see that any investor who wants to build life-changing wealth needs to be on the lookout for the next big battery breakthrough. It will have multi-trillion dollar economic implications.
Over the past year, I’ve spent an enormous amount of time studying the battery industry. I can tell you this mega innovation isn’t a matter of “if,” it’s a matter of “when.” I believe the next big battery breakthrough will go down as one of the greatest inventions of the 21st century.
Think of a smartphone that needs charging just once a month. Or a car that can go weeks driving on a single charge.
For my money, the technology best positioned to lead us into the future is solid state batteries. They are much safer (with virtually no risk of those fires we’ve all heard about), offer significantly better battery life, have higher energy density… and eventually they will be much less expensive than current batteries.
That’s a win-win-win-win.
Research firm Arthur D. Little projects that the global battery market will grow from $60 billion in 2015 to $90 billion by 2025. If solid state becomes the standard for batteries, it will capture a large portion of that $90 billion market. Even a mere 10% is $9 billion, which would represent enormous growth in the next six years.
There are huge investment implications here. Those on the right side of this innovation stand to build incredible wealth… just like those who were on the right side of the internet and the smartphone in the beginning.
P.S. Insiders are already calling this potential new battery a “paradigm shift” in energy technology. Forbes calls it simply: “The battery that could change the world.”

Trust me, it’s amazing.
This breakthrough device could change just about everything in your life – from how you get around to how you communicate with others… even the way you think about the world.
For early investors, this presents the kind of moneymaking opportunity that could turn a tiny initial stake into an absolute fortune.
Folks who get in on this breakthrough now, BEFORE it’s rolled out on a mass scale, will have the chance to be a part of perhaps the single largest legal creation of wealth in the last 25 years.

Self-driving cars – aka “autonomous vehicles” (AVs) – represent one of the biggest investment opportunities of the next 25 years. This innovation will transform huge portions of our economy and create trillion dollar ripple effects through time. It will create huge new winners in short periods of time. It will demolish losers in equally short periods of time. It’s critical that you stay on the right side of this trend. Learn more here.
Marijuana has been outlawed most everywhere for decades… but now a wave of legalization is starting to sweep the world. This will create massive new markets and massive stock market winners. Learn more here.
If I had to make one bet for 2019 it would be that betting is going to be big. The Supreme Court’s May 14 ruling cleared the way for states to allow sports gambling. And in my 25 years of investing experience, I honestly cannot remember many things that come close to magnitude of the investing opportunity that opened up to us. Massive amounts of money are involved in sports betting, and I expect massive amounts of money will be made, too. Learn more here.
