New anode doubles battery energy density - For "some drones" this November

You may have seen reports about SolidEnergy's batteries that use a new type of Li-metal anode which enables a doubling of the energy density of lithium batteries. I looked into it some more and found their first market is going to be drone batteries, this November. The article says "some drones" will be able to use this battery in November. Not sure what that means exactly. I hope…See More
