Battery of the future?

Love to see this technology developed. An EV with a 2,000 mile range is not out of the question - perhaps.

That will be a real game changer if they can make it cost effective. In my line of work I have seen some very large battery rooms for ups systems. I could definitely see them spending the money for the additional ride through time a battery like that would provide.

I seem to recall that LFP was developed in 1996. 20 years seems about right. The problem of how to store renewable sources when they are producing is so huge, perhaps it will move faster.
