Quotes

"you might be able to have cell phone with double or triple the battery life or an electric car with a range of 300 miles that costs only $25,000 -- competitive with an internal combustion engine getting 40 mpg" said Steven Chu, a former U S Secretary of Energy and Nobel laureate and member of the Stanford research team
If this experiment proves to be mass-production-worthy, we could have batteries with far longer life. A smartphone with "double or triple the battery life" is not outside of the realm of possibility, so says Steven Chu, the former U S Secretary of Energy, member of the research team behind this project
