Well, the Li metal cathode is very active and a known fire hazard for one, and cell voltage is much lower than standard LiCo batteries for another. I would not bet on this technology to replace LiCo any time soon.

rick merritt Is it getting any market traction? Any downsides holding it back?

All production of the batteries are being fully swallowed up, as far as I can tell. I tried to contact two of the companies to see if I could buy some, and couldn't even get a list of the form factors being produced. There remains no other downsides, other than facilities and ramping up production, that I know of.

Interesting technology. Is it getting any market traction? Any downsides holding it back?
