Finally-A Giant Leap Forward in Battery Technology

A ten-fold leap in stored energy density has been realized in a University of Illinois lab.

The team claims the batteries should be ten times smaller for the same power storage and they can be recharged 1,000 times faster than existing batteries.

They do this with fabrication at the molecular level using Styrofoam beads as micromolds, depositing metal on the beads and afterwards dissolving away the beads.

Imagine what you can do with those.
