Has anybody seen this Saab?
The claim by Boston Power is that their battery has the
highest energy density by volume, if I understand the
data correctly: 180Wh/kg, 420Wh/l
Has anybody experience with these batteries?

For those interested - it appears they are hiring so if
you want to work for a US battery maker...
