I am just joining this discussion on ALTI, but have been following the company (and invested in it) for some time.

I heard a rumor that Toyota is seriously working on their plug-in Prius and are open to buying next generation battery. Altair may be a takeover target

I was just saying the same thing yesterday, particularly since Toyota has shelved the Prius lithium project to 2011 that was supposed to roll out this year because of safety concerns. Sticking with metal Hydride in interim. Since Alti have the safety problem supposedly licked they would be an excellent choice to supply the big firms with the technology at a bargain price. Surprised the laptop big boys arent similarly interested to cure those overheating batteies and fires

I too have been invested in ALTI for some time now and have been disappointed in a couple of the negative reviews on the company. It appears that A123 (not publicly traded) has a bit of a step up on ALTI since GM has an agreement with A123. I have been unable to find any other players in the large capacity automotive type battery research. I hope you are correct about Toyota. But having worked for DANA a Toyota supplier, I can tell you that they are extremely cautious about suppliers and very demanding on both quality and cost considerations.
