Tesla said their new battery was just 50% higher in energy density than the best comercial on market. Maybe this announce, of a model 50% better made Braga&Goodenough team change the claim to 2x (it was 3x in earlier reports) times more dense than any other lithium ion battery, since now it probably compares to Tesla.
But Tesla charger device it's about 50% the price of their battery, if I remamber well a interview of a scientist.

Your point it's interesting. I can't explain it. That's why I will send the doubts to her.

I imagined it was you in the crash... ;-)

Is that real? If so, it's worth the crash to be proven invincible.

That doesn't sound right at all. Supercapacitors work by storing static electricity on an enormous surface area. Their capacity doesn't increase after many cycles, at least not by 6x. Furthermore, they store a fraction of the energy that chemicals can.

I need to have the principle function of the battery explained in layman's terms. There are only 2 ways that it could possibly store energy; as potential chemical reactants, or as a static charge.
