Great progress is being made on the development of Lithium-Ion batteries.

The problem of these batteries (and by effect the problem with electric cars….) is one of cost. Hopefully this will help reduce this problem.

Update:  Another advance, this time using Nanotechnology on the anodes.

Update: September 17th 2010:  Trial runs and production partners forming.

While it is nice than they have increased the batteries capacities, whenever I read about nanotechnology I wonder about cost and production ability…..
