>>> Cheaper Li-Ion batteries?

Yet another press release type announcement, but I think the gist is probably right. With the steadily growing demand for energy storage (in vehicles and stationary applications) I think the increased mass production will drive costs down. I sure hope so (in time for my build).

Battery manufacturer Ener1 just announced that they’re foreseeing an 50% drop in the price of lithium ion batteries as production increases. Where exactly this price drop will be coming from, we’re not sure.
