Next Gen Batteries
Scientists from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology have published findings of a new electrolyte that can help with production of magnesium-sulfur battery cells. These batteries would contain higher storage densities than lithium. Magnesium is abundant, non toxic and doesn't degrade in air, making for a very plentiful and useful material. The electrolyte is said to be produced very simply and have a number of promising properties.

The future for batteries sounds promising, and hopefully cheaper Unsure

If by cheaper, you mean cheaper for the producers of the product to get it sure.

Well I meant cheaper to buy since it's produced easier with more abundant materials.

RE: Next Gen Batteries
As long as their recharging potential is improved aswel, this is good news.

Yeah no, they will end up like diamonds.

RE: Next Gen Batteries
Do you mean time to recharge or number of recharges?

I would sacrifice time to recharge for any improvement in battery capacity or longevity or cost.

No, but keep in mind the market will make things they have plentiful expensive, it is not the first thing. That is why I said diamonds, they have a fuck ton of them, just they sell them for a lot of money.

Diamonds are expensive because real diamonds can't be made in a lab, they can only be made naturally. Cubic Zirconia or replica diamond is a lot cheaper because it can be made a lot easier. Real diamond rings can be anywhere from mid hundreds to thousands of dollars. As for Cubic Zirconia, Macys has a ring on sale for $38.

Ummm, no. Synthetic diamonds are made in laboratories. They are real diamonds just not natural ones. Cubic zirconia is often cut to look like a diamond but is something different. And, yes. The diamond industry, De Beers in particular, has a long history of artificial price manipulation in the diamond market.
