Because everyone is concerned about increased energy density, power density and durability as well as reduced cost.I don't understand the logic behind the hand wringing over battery breakthroughs...

Maybe it is not so much hand wringing as it is acute interest. of course I speak only for myself. I suspect we all express things here in terms of Tesla because that is our common subject, even though we all know these subjects are of worldwide importance.
