>>> Graphene – basis of a new battery technology?

Another new technology being examined for battery use. Actually ultracapacitor use, but…

I don’t know if it will fly, but if you are into computers, silicon chips, carbon nano-tubes and the like (well, some of us keep up with more than boats :-)), then read up on graphene.

Being able to "easily" create a single atom thick layer of anything just boggles my mind.

If I were a betting person, I’d lay the future of transportation on electric vehicles powered by ultracapacitors that provide a 500 mile range on a 5 minute “fill-up” and don’t cost much more than a gas or diesel vehicle you might buy today. Sound like a fantasy? I sure hope it’s not.
