Elon Musk just won a $50 million bet

❝ Elon Musk has won a high-stakes bet after the construction of the world’s largest lithium-ion battery was completed in under 100 days.

The Tesla founder made a bet on Twitter with Atlassian’s Mike Cannon-Brookes in March that Musk would supply the battery within 100 days or it was free.

❝ Musk said that if he failed to meet the deadline, the project would have cost him “$50 million or more.”…

❝ When fully charged, the battery, Tesla’s Powerpack, is expected to hold enough power for 8,000 homes for 24 hours, or more than 30,000 houses for an hour during a blackout.

Way cool. And well done. Try doing that with a lump of coal sometime.
