Ceramic Batteries – a new breakthru?

CNBC was talking about disruptive technolgies the other day, and they mentioned an article in Business 2.0 that described 11 new innovations that could disrupt entire industries. One of them was about EEStor, a company in Texas that is working on ceramic batteries that store electricity, charge up in 5 minutes, and delivery enough electricity to drive a hybrid or electric car 500 miles on about $9 worth of electricity. That works out to the equivalent of gasoline at $.45 per gallon. Supposedly these new batteries will provide enough to also power SUVs. EEStor is looking to have the technology “roadworthy” by 2008.
