    I don't think that there's anything in this article that would surprise us, but it just continues to illustrate that practical battery technology improvements are going to continue to be a long, hard slog (With battery technologies like these, how are we ever going to power the DeathStar...???)...

    It's been a while, but at last another hopeful candidate!

    How's this statement as an example of how bipolar battery development is?

    "...Modern batteries are, quite frankly, a miracle compared to ye olde lead acid battery. Yet they still contain less energy per unit mass than the equivalent mass of wood..."

    graphene = vaporware. If they're going to play the vaporware game they need to up the buzzword density. They need to discover novel catalysts that protect the new anode during recharging with the aid of deep learning convolutional neural networks. The novel anode they have discovered must consist of graphene nanostructures arranged in a novel metamaterial that can be printed with commercially available 3d printers.The new anode material could also be used to deliver medications more efficiently or be used as a substrate for cheap pollution sensors and blood tests.

    See, that's how you write a bullsh*t press release for tech that will never ever happen. The only thing missing is 'topological insulators'.

    I read a rumor recently on a german website saying that a Samsung scientist leaked to them that Samsung had terminated the developement of their graphene based battery that was started one year ago.

    Ok, just a rumor, once again.

    While we're on the subject, the "time traveler" John Titor did supposedly use Kerr micro-blackholes to power his time machine:

    So you might be on to something here... (Mr. Titor?) :)

    Came across this item on Indiegogo this morning:

    https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/...medium=email&utm_campaign=bck-12222018perks#/

    I can't say if the claims for this rechargeable battery are valid or not, but it's apparent that a few of our members are interested in rechargeable AA's, so here it is. Also bear in mind that sometimes, Indiegogo and Kickstarter products don't exactly turn out as expected; the Bagel and dasKeyboard 5Q are examples... So caveat emptor!
