This seems like a great technology for any low power, long life, remote sensing/telemetry application.  I didn't see any information on recycling of this type of battery.  Is end of life for one of these packs another disposal challenge in the making?

Most cells leak over time.  How are these different?

I seem to remember a few years back there was talk of a sensor system that had a very low current draw and was able to power itself via vibrations from outside.  Sort of like the battery-free watches that I've seen.  I wonder if that technology can be combined with a system like this to recharge with motion.

I agree with Rob, especially considering there have all ready been 39 reported shark attacks this year. It is good that this information is made available not only for aquatic applications but for many other applications that require long battery life due to limited access or charging. Good post!!

Monitoring beaches

Now that's a cool application, monitoring beaches for sharks and other predatory creatures. I know there are a ton of RFID applications where it's hard to replace the device or recharge batteries.
