Submission + - Did This Japanese Startup Unveil Battery Tech That Could 'Supercharge' Tesla?

joe5 writes: Many experts suggest that battery technology is really the key to the future of transportation. Its certainly the key to unlocking Tesla for even further growth. Today, a Japanese startup called Power Japan Plus came out of stealth mode and unveiled a new battery chemistry that it says could (and some hyperbole is involved presumably) reinvent they way we think of potential transportation batteries. In testing, the recycle-able cell has completed more than 3,000 charge/discharge cycles with virtually no performance degradation, meaning that it could conceivably last the lifetime of a car. They company won’t yet provide too many details due to pending patents, and won’t even say who its first customer is — but the chemistry requires 'specific and proprietary changes to the nanostructure of the carbon crystals.'

It isn't easy being the parent of a six-year-old. However, it's a pretty small price to pay for having somebody around the house who understands computers.
