The next major innovation in batteries might be hereDave Eaglesham,
the CEO of Pellion Technologies, a Massachusetts-based startup,
believes his company has made the leap beyond lithium-ion that will
bring the battery industry to the next stage of technological
disruption. He and his colleagues have accomplished something
researchers have been struggling with for decades: they’ve built a
reliable rechargeable lithium-metal battery.

Though other startups have for years made various claims about
lithium-metal batteries, none yet have gotten past the development or
testing phases; Pellion has already been selling their battery to at
least one buyer since February.

Pellion’s battery can pack nearly double the energy of a conventional
lithium-ion battery, making it able to, for example, double the time a
drone can spend in the air. That 100% increase in energy density is a
step change compared to the annual 10% or so improvement the battery
industry currently averages. If Pellion overcomes early limitations,
its batteries have the potential to power a Tesla car for 800 km (500
miles) on a single charge, rather than today’s upper limits of 400 km.

If. Might. Maybe. Every year, we hear one or two such announces. But
there is a large difference between a laboratory experiment and a
reliable industrial battery with good performances.

And nothing will come from it.
Probably looking for funding to carry on the charade

If this story is true it means they've been lying
all along about EVs, battery farms and all their
claims about economical grids with solar & wind.

You can't invent a reliable rechargeable lithium
battery TODAY unless you never had one YESTERDAY.

The article is worth reading. Nice pictures too,

Yeah so what, things are progressing at a faster pace than ever before. If you have a problem with that dont really care

Wait. So now you're insisting that Tesla's "Big
Battery" and everything stuffed into EVs is a
total piece of crap?

Because you've been saying the opposite. You know,
the opposite of what you are saying right now, right
here.
