I wonder if they will try this new assembly technique on an old technology standard? It would be interesting to see how this could be used in the old "Edison Cell" battery. Also called nickel-iron battery. The down side to nickel-iron is the efficiency of the battery 60 to 70% and the discharge rate is also dismal. But with the new porous technology, it may make an old tired standard an excellent power storage, grid smoothing device for large scale and even home utility use.
