I was watching NOVA on PBS about battery technology titled Search for Super Battery. They showed a pretty impressive battery developed by a Tufts Uviversity professor - Mike Zimmerman, that uses a plastic in place of electrolyte and uses lithium metal instead of lithium ion thus doubling energy density.
Question is, how soon will this obsolete the current li-ion batteries? What does this mean for current Tesla buyers?
