I didn't see any mention of the li-ion phosphate plate battery that BYD produces.

They seem to last a lot longer than the standard Li-ion.

Have I missed something ?

Since BYD, as far as I know, do not supply its batteries to other carmakers, only for its own cars, I omitted it out of this article, because its role in a bit tangential. But their batteries (and their EVs) are top of line, and according to Charlie Munger, they are dominating Tesla in the China market (keep in mind the Munger is also pretty biased towards BYD :) )
