Default Interesting new battery tech

I wonder how long this will take this new battery technology to become useful to RC racers....

Max charge rate is 1.21 gigawatts, you'll need a flux capacitor to charge it or have it hooked to the bell tower during a thunderstorm!!

Seems to be a more POWERFUL battery rather than a higher CAPACITY battery. Punchier (perhaps) rather than smaller. And since they are comparing it to button cells, not likely to be a tech for RC cars any time soon. More likely a tech for applications that need a certain amount of power but currently use an over-capacity battery to provide it.

We wont ever see this technology The oil companies will pool their hundreds of Billions of profits from the last quarter and buy the rights and destroy it

Yup, just like the solar industry. Sad but true, I know people that experienced this... Big Oil came along and bought up Solar companies and ran the company into the ground and scuttled its technology / patents so they wouldn't have to compete with it.

Gas would be a thing of the past. Imagine an electric car that could go, say 500-1000 miles and recharge in a couple of minutes

Lithium-air batteries show very good potential in terms of energy density to replace gasoline.

A lot of people could deal with 100-150 mile range if you could recharge in 5 minutes. Sorry Jake didnt mean to take this off subject

Big oil can buy what it wants , but the military will find use for it anyway, and we'll probably get it that way just like the internet...
