Been watching the battery developments lately.

Slow starting video, but this one sounds like a good candidate:

For what? Seems to be suitable only for micropower applications.
John,

Nice thing about batteries . . .you can stack them up as needed.
Ever see the batteries that power a Tesla?

That is just ridiculous. Those started as flashlight batteries, then the vaping kids got turned on to them, the scooters and hoverboards, now they are stacking them in cars. Crazy to think I was buying the "good" ones from Sony in 2010-14 from a "guy on the inside" and selling them to vapers for $40 a pop and now Tesla is powering their cars with them. Back then you couldn't get the Sony ones because everyone was being bought up and resold. I remember people buying electronic scooters and hoverboards by the exact model for around $250 and just gutting the thing to sell the green Sony batteries for WAY more. Life is a fun ride. But seriously you couldn't just make a bigger proprietary battery? C'mon Elon WTF

Yes, I know, but the ones in the original post are micropower. Powering an EV is a different matter. It would be like using piling a mountain sized pile of pacemaker batteries to power an EV.
JohnC,

The video specifically mentions using the new battery technology to power EVs and aircraft. Most of a small NDB battery would be the case materials, but one case can hold more than one power element.
With any new development, you can expect better packaging and more output to evolve, from continuing research.
