It seems that lead can be used to improve lithium batteries. Who would have thunk it?

If it works as described, good, or even excellent. I would expect the weight per kWh to be lower than for current lithium batteries as long as they meet the claim of doubling capacity.

Let’s hope they last more than 5 years!

All sounds a bit experimental to me, could get expensive.

Yes, early days, but it does indicate that there is a likelihood that in the next 10 years we will see a doubling of battery capacity for the same weight. Job done.
