    According to this:

    500,000X the energy density of capacitors, 12-25% of the cost of LiIon batteries.

    Could reduce the weight, cost, and size of FoFus dramatically.

    … or not.

    It’s desperately needed tech and people are striving mightily to find a way but the chances of any given concept working out are slim at best.

    But people will keep trying and one day…

    They’re looking for commercial partners now, so are unlikely to be at the vapourware lab stage. I hope Panasonic jumps in and develops it for Tesla.

    It’s not vaporware, but it does appear to be at the “lab” stage. It’s very hard to tell without any data or confirmation, and it seems that they’re not rushing to publication. That actually might be a good sign, because it may show that they think this is too important (and commercial) for publication prior to patent.

    So we’ll just have to wait and see.
