This does sound interesting, and the article is also realistic about time frames. The commercial company that will be developing it projects a working prototype (prototype, not commercial product) in 5-10 years.

All the research that's going into batteries is fantastic and will surely yield improvements, but the time frame from lab discovered to commercial product, let alone the time to product with any measurable market share is much, much longer than most people imagine. It's taken 20-30 years to get Lithium Ion batteries to their present market share.
