Game Changer X The Current Lithium
 
This .....if it comes to light will be the game changer. Go IBM

Sorry if it is a repost :( I tried the search first but could not find anything.

Technology Review: Waterproof Lithium-Air Batteries

Lithium-metal batteries approach the energy density of fuel cells without the plumbing needed for these devices; in theory, the maximum energy density is more than 5,000 watt-hours per kilogram, or more than 10 times that of today's lithium-ion batteries. Lithium metal-air batteries are also very lightweight because it's not necessary to carry a second reactant. Lithium metal is "the holy-grail battery material," says Steven Visco, chief technical officer and founder of PolyPlus.

DIMS -

I saw this on page two :

Quote:

The single-use batteries made by the company employ a piece of lithium metal about two centimeters squared and three millimeters thick; they have a storage capacity close to that of the lithium-ion batteries in today's laptops at one-fifth the weight.
Out "lithium-ioning" lithium ion. Another battery race-horse (or energizer lupin?!?!) to watch!
