Oh My! This Will Drive the BDSers Up the Wall...

Guess What This Can Do...
An Israeli company just may have the answer to some of the world's energy problems. They have created a car battery that can power an electric vehicle (EV) for up to 1,000 miles before needing a recharge. Here is an overview taken from their web site:

Phinergy is a leading developer of breakthrough zero-emission, high energy-density systems based on metal-air energy technologies. The company’s primary focus is on aluminum-air and zinc-air batteries. Unlike conventional batteries that carry oxygen, these batteries freely breathe oxygen from the ambient air to release the energy contained in metals. Phinergy's technologies offer significant advantages including:
  • Ultra High energy density
  • Zero CO2 emissions
  • Fully recyclable materials
  • Safety
  • Competitive cost
The Company’s Aluminum-Air battery system has been successfully integrated into an electric vehicle resulting in more than three times the driving range of current EVs. Phinergy's technology provides energy solutions to a wide range of applications including:
  • Transportation
  • Stationary energy storage
  • Aerospace and defense
  • Consumer electronics
  • Chlorine production
So what does that mean in plain-speak? Well, a picture is worth a thousand words and a video~well, watch this and see for yourself... 

Oh, By the Way~It Seems They Already Have a Contract
 With a Global Automaker for “Production Volumes” Starting in 2017
