Battery made of ordinary paper?

Oh, yessir. Supercapacitors are already on their way to plugin hybrids, if I understand the A123 unit correctly.

And other things are in the works.

If there's a way to do away with the battery altogether and just use supercapacitors on the cheap, I'm all for it.

WHo dares, WINS!!!!

A123 cells are all battery,
they don't sully it with a capacitor :p

they have been available through back door means for a while now.

this is a test on various high power LiFePO4 cells from a few years ago:
