Lithium batteries are already so extensively used in modern products that a person would be hard pressed to indict the technology. Of course, a new organization is likely to sensationalize and make sweeping generalizations for the sake of news.

Ref If all of that is beginning to sound like an indictment of lithium-ion batteries, then that's a shame. And whose fault is this? Couldn't be the Media's errored reporting? Could it? The comment last week from a Japanse media report. "The batteries felt lighter than normal" I guess everyone knwos what a Boeing 787 battery weighs and can make such a judgemnet. All Rubbish.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
