Breakthrough?
« on: May 28, 2015, 02:38:09 PM »
Could this be a technological breakthrough which might have good implications for electric vehicles?

Let us hope that they do rather better with their storage capacitor than the authors of the article do with their English!

Or indeed their basic scientific understanding: it will be of greater interest when someone creates the world's smallest 10,000 Farad graphene supercapacitor.  And surely it's the inadvertent electrical current which caused all those smoking batteries - inadvertent current from a greater source, with higher current handling, will be all the worse!
