New battery boffinry could 'triple range' of electric vehicles

Endurance, not range

Is this some kind of poor translation?

The new chemistry improves the number of cycles in the battery life, not the range per charge.

That translates to an improvement in the service life of the battery pack/distance between failures

Mind you, there are already 10,000+ (possibly 100,000) cycle olivine-based LiIon batteries in the lab and three other anti-dendrite technologies (including one which can be literally cut up without catching fire and has been demonstrated working using existing assembly line tech) that are showing no signs of commercial release.
