This is certainly a teaser article. Does 3x longer life mean that it goes three times as long between charges or that the battery lasts three times as many years before it requires replacement? What is the price point compared with current technologies? Can it be placed in the same form factor as current batteries and be used as after market replacements / upgrades? What is known about the long term failure modes? Battery recalls for computer companies are incredibly expensive.
