That's very true...Wifey says:
Cool facts you say?
"A growing number of engineers now say the lithium-ion battery revolution has stalled, undercut by high costs, technical complexity and safety concerns.
"Smart people have been working on this for 10 years already and no one is close to a new kind of battery," http://nlpc.org/stories/2013/04/11/chevy-volt ... ;
"Their aim is to build a battery strong enough to power a wider range of vehicles, something they think the current cutting-edge technology - lithium ion - can't do cheaply, particularly given recent safety scares."
"These people say expectations were set too high, too fast. People projected that "clean technology" batteries would shrink in size and weight at the speed of the microchip revolution. That hasn't happened, and it won't any time soon. "We're not going to see a different chemistry, unless we're very lucky, for decades." " http://news.yahoo.com/rethinking-lithium-ion-...
