Default Re: I wish I could build one of these

Hey all you tinkerers and mechanically inclined out there....anybody ever try grouping a stack of Black & Decker Nano Batteries and see what happens ?? I found this article rather intriguing:

A123's real target, however, is your car. Chiang says A123's cells could lighten a Toyota Prius' 100-pound battery by as much as 80 percent and help boost any hybrid's performance. The quick recharging time - the M1 takes five minutes to reach 90 percent capacity - plus high peak power also would be ideal for plug-in versions of gas-electric vehicles. With a bit more research, the world's roads may someday see fast, zero-carbon autos that zip past gas guzzlers and tank up from the grid faster than a rest-stop Starbucks can serve you a latte.
