I saw the same article yesterday. If you look at their site these batteries only seem to be tested to 500 cycles, and the AH capacity pretty drastically drops off during that time (a good 20%+ loss). I realize the weight benefit, but they will drastically need to improve cycle life in order to make this main stream.
