Batteries? No, supercapacitors.


This looks promising.

I saw this the other day, it looks very promising...

re: Batteries? No, supercapacitors.


yes, i saw that too, it's a great step forward in battery technology. the problem remains though. Batteries dont create energy (electricity). We still have to generate the energy though oil/NG/coal or nuclear reactors.

Hopefully this will pan out and possible replace some of the small engines on things like leaf blowers, weed eaters, small cars and bikes.

What we need though, is a new energy source. likely not to be coming from solar, wind, or any other "renewable" energy source. We will likely need a new breakthrough in some area of nuclear physics or something like that to truly have an energy revolution.

I fricking love science.

Imagine all the cool shite we could develop if we didn't subsidize the ignants.

Man that is awesome. That will make electric cars very feasible. Good luck to them... although it will probably screw my company...

I'll adapt!

With such a fast charge, I have to wonder if this process is more efficient with regards to overall power consumption or if it is simply a faster transfer of the same amount of power

It's more efficient because it's lighter, and probably cheaper that say, using a bank of Li batteries.
