EEStore ultra capacitor news

http://www.greencarcongress.com/2007/01/eestor_announce.html#more

The EEStor ESU is projected to offer up to 10x the energy density (volumetric and gravimetric) of lead-acid batteries at the same cost. In addition, the ESU is projected to store up to 1.5 to 2.5 times the energy of Li-Ion batteries at 12 to 25% of the cost.

According to EEStor, the EESU will not degrade due to being fully discharged or recharged, and also can be rapidly charged without damaging the material or reducing its life. The cycle time to fully charge a 52 kWh EESU would be in the range of 4 to 6 minutes with sufficient cooling of the power cables and connections.

EEStor Ceramic Battery: Internal Combustion Replacement?

Here are some more articles, these Capacitors sound like the real deal, I hope so.

Seasoned scientists at EEStore say they've created a battery made of glass- and aluminum-coated ceramics

There are several others but these were the ones I found most informative.

I hope it's true

This still is very preliminary. If you read closely it's all about patents, process, and projections. It is very light on actual product.

Re: EEStore ultra capacitor news

As is fact, ROBOTS EAT BATTERIES!... I've developed a (SEIKO et al) Kinetically powered and RF/HouseHold controlling robot, but as back-up this capacitor sounds ideal for my application! How do I find out more on a different (Low-Demand) application, just as sophisticated as my concept?
