Latest? That article was written 3 years ago!
Given that Graphene batteries currently barely get a mention vs Lithium in the media, I assume they are still working on making them live up to the claims in that article.

Hi Gordon :)
Well I guess the unis now employ media spin people to keep stuff in the public eye. Cheaper than actually doing research. Also keeps the grant money coming with a bit of luck.

However it does show that there is potential for great improvements in batteries. I note that battery storage is now being considered seriously for grid stabilisation as the potential is demonstrated, rather than base load coal. (plus other means also) :mrgreen:

Potential for sure, but unfortunately many of these "breakthroughs" announced with great fanfare do not amount to much in the long term.
