Default New Li-Ion Technology

Very interesting stuff at University of Illinois Urbana/Champaign.....

http://www.extremetech.com/computing...0-times-faster

If this new technology makes it to market over the next 2-5 years, it will change the way we do thing (yes, including me, the last diehard 2 stroke driver). I wouldn't hold my breath tho. This technology trully threatens big oil. I wouldn't be surprised if patent rights weren't controlled by it.... Unless the Government intercepts. Then all bets are off

Energy density still low compared to gas. We don't need higher power density, we need more energy density.

This technology trully threatens big oil.
I dont think so, see attached chart of alternative fuel use in vehicles.

Natural gas, a hydrocarbon, either produced directly or produced as solution gas from oil production
Propane - extracted from Natural gas via refrigeration/dehydration
Ethanol - can be produced from ethylene which is produced from ethane which is extracted from natural gas using cryogenic processes.

I doubt there will be a significant threat to O&G industry activity from battery operated cars in most of our lifetimes. More than 50% of each barrel of oil goes toward something other than gasoline, and that doesn't include the solution gas that comes off during processing which is further refined into feedstock for many other products that people use each day (like the toothpaste you brush your teeth with).

This is akin to statements such as "blocking the Keystone XL pipeline will reduce development of the Alberta oilsands"...complete hogwash.

Any idiot can take a single statement out of a whole and pick it apart. You might want to watch for that

Fast charging is great, smaller package (less weight) is great.
Scaling will be an obstacle, it always is.
I think most importantly to RC/F3A is consistent quality, robustness to extreme operating conditions (including charging/discharging), and SAFETY so we can put on a charger and not have to think/worry about anything.

The only threat to Big Oil is themselves - they will rule until the earth is dead.

I'm much more interested in the non Li based battery/capacitor tech, like the graphene supercapacitors.

Anybody speculating on how much longer we'll be running current technology Li-po's?
