Both interesting and optimistic: https://youtu.be/UhH-XoGjE7E

Based on this and his other videos, this gentleman claims to have invented a battery that we all can just print.

Re: Global Warming's Terrifying New Math

If enough heat is produced, is this a possible cold weather heating alternative for the iMiev? https://youtu.be/6B3n3TAwC4g

Anyone want to try this kit? https://youtu.be/JMHw6YNEb5w

An excellent presentation of the science behind AGW and an explanation of how solid it is. Too bad most of the people who really need to see it never will.

That ChargedEVs article very ably points out the difficulties of introducing new chemistry into an existing production environment - for the cell originators as well as both cell and vehicle manufacturers. Wildcat offers to help in that. I recall the leap of faith that both Honda and Toyota took in producing the original Insight and Prius with at that time minimally-proven (long-term) NiMh technology - and that was over 30 years after the original NiMh battery was invented! Exciting world, and we are still in its infancy. Pity that battery development lay dormant for 100 years. Now, EVs and large-scale storage are providing the impetus for its revival.

Eh, but handheld electronics have probably provided a bigger impetus.
