re: Lithium-ion Batteries Made Cheaper, Safer

This may be a great improvement. However, the article seems to have some inconsistencies. The statement "Consumer Reports recommends lithium batteries in high-drain devices such as cameras and alkaline batteries in low-drain devices such as remote controls" I think refers to disposable lithium batteries, not rechargeable Li-ion batteries. Also, the statement "Additionally, using the acrylic S020 made it possible for high capacity retention - more than 500 cycles" seems odd; 500 cycles would not scratch the surface in an automotive application. Perhaps this is a misprint?
