Hmm interesting, but even a Li-Ion battery shows wear over time. I know that time is considerably more than a NMh battery, but it still happens even if it is just a wear/charge energy pattern.
I don't know Rapid?
Just like the Human body, the only reason we age and die and is because of the external dynamics that we continuously stress on the body. in a sterile environment with just the right amount of sustenance life could be infinite.
If this battery could be kept at just the right environment, the theory is sound. When I first saw these batteries I was very impressed and said Bout time. now if we could just get everyone on the Hydrogen fuel cells for the car and the home we would all be better off! yet if we did then everyone would not know what to do without gas oil and all the politics and money involved. Can you imagine...A world without gas stations, power plants, electric bills, politicians!
Neat. I could see in maybe 3-4 years nearly every device in a computer having one of these, so in case of a power failure, the computer could stay on for another 2-3 minutes (without a UPS), enough time to shut down and save your work!
Maybe some how they could write up some software so you could even see how much total power your entire system has left with all the combined Li-Ion batteries, and could evenly distribute it if one device's integrated Li-Ion runs out of juice.
