I found her Skype and sent a hello. But I'm not sure if she keep Skype connected, So I will send a email again.

In one video she said that scale up needed to be checked, but that in principle should not be difficult to adapt industrial machines to this new battery.
I imagine pouch batteries would be viable, if jelly roll it's already possible.

One thing I imagine it's about danger of electric schock, since the battery have hi-energy and hi discharge/fast, the danger of chock it's increased in case someone tried to broke, perforate, whatever. Just my imagination...

By the way, about the supercapacitor effect, somone here pointed about supercapasitor have a very huge surface area and even so don't be up to Lithium battries capacity.
Well, the "glass electrolyte" it's not a single piece, it's more like a fine sand I presume, and the more you reduce the scale of a aboject, like broke in small piece, you increase the surface area in relation to the initial single object. Each time, for example, you split a cube (6 sides) into 8 smaller cubes (cut each in the middle) you double the surface area.

So a very fine "glass" particle will have a much larger surface area. I did some calculation, and if you reduce the scale (cutting a large cube into smaller ones) to cubes with 1/1000 of original diameter, you get 1000x the surface area of the original large cube.
That's why shaved ice melt so fast, cause they exchange temperature much faster than the same mass of ice in a large block, since the shaved ice have far more surface area.

And I remamber they found (another reasearch) that a material used in some semi flexible contact lens could hold as capacitor nearly the same as lithium ion battery.

Here, I found it again (edited) :

These things made me reduce my initial skepticism.

By now my only skepticism that remains it's about the claim of battery self charge using environment heat. If such charging would be relevant, like fast enough, it could turn homes into small power plants to supply itself.

But I imagine this self charge, if true, would be very slow, not producing much energy per day, or even slower in larger battery cells, due lower relation of surface area with air, and so so low contact area with heat.
