BUSH IS REPORTEDLY GOING TO PUSH BATTERIES and plug-in hybrids tonight. This may help:
The company boldly claims that its system, a kind of battery-ultracapacitor hybrid based on barium-titanate powders, will dramatically outperform the best lithium-ion batteries on the market in terms of energy density, price, charge time, and safety. Pound for pound, it will also pack 10 times the punch of lead-acid batteries at half the cost and without the need for toxic materials or chemicals, according to the company.
I hope it's true, but I'll need a bit more convincing. (Via Slashdot).
