All true as far as I can tell. Ultracapacitors have been around for years and have constantly been the subject of outrageous claims. EEStor was one of the most famous claimants — with promises of a breakthrough technology that they never would fully demonstrate nor subject to independent testing (until recently). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EEStor Ultracapacitors have a significantly lower charge density than batteries, which is why they’re not currently powering cell phones or cars and won’t be until that physics problem is solved. Eventual testing of EEStor’s incredible claims found that their product’s energy density was actually an order of magnitude or two below that of Lithium Ion batteries. The title of the post is fairly deceptive in my mind, as well. It’s not “unlimited storage” that’s being implied, but rather “unlimited charge cycles”. That’s a big distinction...
