    Reading all the attached articles it looks like graphene is the greatest thing since bucky balls.

    Patents are good and cheap. Prototypes are better and much more costly.

    3500V over microscopic distances could mean millions of Volts per meter. Where are people with knowlede about high capacity capacitors when you need them?

    Hee, yes - I was having difficulty submitting that post due to database errors and "cannot connect" problems. It is no wonder it did not readily show up on your radar before your similar post :smile:

    A: More bang for your butt.

    Did you know that "Short shorts" are also known as "Hot pants?"

    Hope that isn't "much ado about nothing". No real news as far as I can see.

    I thought she was just being nice. Clearly EEStore has been trying to solicit GM's business. She seemed to be saying, "You guys keep working on that, but I'll believe it when I see it."

    That was my take too. With a little bit of "oh yeah, those guys" somewhere after the beginning.

    Advanced Capacitors World Summit 2009

    Greetings to All,

    The current and future capabilities of capacitors will be discussed at an Advanced Capacitors World Summit March 31 – April 2, 2009 in La Jolla, CA, US. Experts from the capacitor industry are scheduled to attend. Also credible companies in the capacitor business are participating (Maxwell Technologies, APowerCap Technologies, Nesscap). One company missing from the summit is EESTOR.

    BTW-I see nothing has changed with EESTOR since the start of this topic in 2007. There have been plenty of news story based on hearsay, hope, and belief, but not one independent person outside EESTOR has seen and or confirmed a working prototype of EESTOR's ceramic battery. Mailing literature to GM does not prove working prototypes exist.

    Yes, weren't EESTOR supposed to deliver the working prototypes to ZENN by the end of 2008?

    Yes, CEO of ZENN, Ian Clifford stated delivery of EESU's was "imminent" in 2008. In this youtube video clip recorded in 2007, IC states EESTOR is on schedule to deliver production units (not prototypes) by the end of calendar year 2007.

    There is a saying, fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.
