IBM Welcomes Japanese Partners to Potentially World-Changing 'Battery 500' Project | Hybrid Cars

IBM is totally misunderstanding the problem if they imagine that energy density is the obstacle. PRICE is the obstacle and until they can promise a battery 5 to 10 times cheaper, whatever they produce, regardless of its energy density, has little value. I have even heard crazy and nonsensical claims that a battery's density must equal that of gasoline to be a successful competitor - the argument stupidly ignores all the extra weight required by a gas powered vehicle (engine, tranny, fuel system, exhaust system, etc.) to burn that "low density energy source." Current li ion batteries are light enough - Tesla with its 320 mile range (and that could be extended if one wanted to pay for it) and recharge time of under 1 hour, demonstrates that even on a trip, an electric won't appreciably slow you down. 75 to 100 mile ranged vehicles are useful to relatively few - they cost way...
