Re: Good news, everyone!

But on a serious note, I do feel there has been weekly news with promises of "improved batteries" for the past 5 years, yet none of them have been put into commercial production (if they have, then we've been duped).

I'm guessing that the battery makers are happy with things the way they are since they would have a more expensive product with the "new" designs and also probably not be selling as many batteries. The question would be then are they ignoring these new designs or are they buying the patents and burying them?
