Firm claims its printed battery cells will be more reliable and capable of storing two to three times energy by weight and last tens of thousands of cycles.

If they really DO spool up in 18 months for small appliances; if they really ARE 2-3 times more energy-dense, and if they ACTUALLY will work for 1,000s of cycles - then Tesla will make battery packs out of them in under 24 months.

:D

Oh - and even if they don't meet all of those milestones and the batteries are "only as good" - printing technology means cheaper and more durable.

Seems like they're making some pretty good progress. Just last year an article was written about them that amounted to, more or less, a mission statement.

Personally I'd love to see some of the specs on their prototypes.

So would I, and they just happen to be a 2 hour drive from me, so I might pay them a visit sometime next week and check the place out.
Awesome - let us know what you find out!

It's only a "2 hr drive" for me, too - they are only a few blocks from Orlando Executive, and I've landed there a few times. But, not in this icky weather... :D
