I came across this interesting article and video today. This is the first time I have ever heard of 'Fluoride' batteries.
Obviously, one of the greatest issues facing the future of drones is flight time. 15 minutes just does not cut it.
Battery technology impacts drones, I think, far more than smart phones. This is simply because drones physically propel themselves in the real world, where as a phone just runs code and lights a screen for the most part.
From what I understand, 'fluoride' is superior over lithium as a battery material in that lithium can store one free electron per atom as opposed to flour ides ability to store 3.
I am wondering what is driving battery research.
