New battery breakthroughs are as much about microscopic structures, as chemistry.

Tesla buys Maxwell...possibly for dry electrode coating tech.

Look at the time stamp for that video: may 2014...
And googling the company doesn't produce a promising result.

As usual 99.9% of all breakthrough announcements is just BS.
Most of them are broadcast to raise investment funds and will not leed to any new and interesting batteries, at least not for the common bloke.
Efficiency is king!

The saga repeats itself over and over.
If just one of all theese chemistries being broadcast as revolutionary actually made it to the market we would not have this forum thread.
Don't get me wrong. I love new breakthrough technology but not when it comes to vapor batteries.
Regular lithium 18650's is more than good enough.

Once again which chemistry or combination of chemistry and licenses will prove to be economically feasible to produce in large commercial quantities down the line.
