Batteries 10X better

Interesting article and it would be fantastic if this can get into production. If a two hour laptop battery lasted 20 hours using this new technology, what will most likely happen is the batteries will be made 4 times smaller saving a lot of weight and size and still give you over twice the life.

This will have applications in many spaces besides this. I can see much more powerful RC planes and helicopters as a result of the additional power that will be available as well as things like (as noted in the article) better electric cars but also longer lasting cell phones (not necessarily a good thing) and other portable electronic devices. Maybe we can finally have an battery operated leaf blower that is actually worth getting.
