Default Electric airplane - recharged

Take a look at this:
http://www.electronista.com/articles...owire.battery/

OK, it's just a laboratory development and needs to work it's way through
all the R&D to become an actual product. But, an order of magnetude
improvement? WOW!

Of course, as many 'negative experts' will point out, if this thing shorts
out, your airplane goes supernova.

However, if this thing works out, a 10 hour, 1000NM range electric airplane
is actually possible.

This won't work in small aircraft but Toshiba has a new gadget that
should work for the big boys.

Also, Exxon (yep, the gasoline folks) is actually bringing new lithium
battery technology to market. They are aimed at the EV/ hybrid vehicle market.

Here's an interview with Dr. Yi Cui the Stanford researcher who made the
breakthrough. Yi seems to be saying that his work is complementary to the
Lithium Iron (LiFeP04) batteries from companies like A123 Systems. If true,
and I very much hope it is, we will get 10 hour duration electric airplanes
that recharge in minutes and electric cars with 1000 mile range. Long life,
safety, high capacity, fast charge (10 min) high current delivery, what's
not to like.

This could be, finally, the death nell for the internal combustion engine.

That sounds incredibly optimistic, and far from necessary. I would be happy
to pay a lot less for a three hour airplane and/or a car with climate control
that will carry 4 folks an honest 100 miles or so.

It is 6'x20' and produces only 200kW or 268hp. That's a lot when
powering a building but not so much for a large aircraft.

And I'll bet that it was designed and built with lightness as the foremost
consideration.

What are you basing that statement on?

That there have been one hour and 100 miles flights made with the old Li-Po
batteries.

Even if it's half that, electrics would be viable.

In what aircraft was that?
