Very preliminary

50 charge/discharge cycles seems a rather short test sample - at a leisurely rate it would seem less than two months.

Smartphones today need to be charged every day; one would expect 150 cycles at a minimum to more closely correlate to real world usage.

If this technology can really double the (energy) capacity of lithium-ion, it would represent a gigantic step forward. The worry is always that what happens in the lab doesn't always translate to real-life applications.

Any collaboration?

Nice artic.le Elizabeth. With all of the work being done to advance batteries, do you know if there is much collaboration or sharing of new developments? Seems like improvement will take forever if some of the efforts are not coordinated to support each other.
