    There was a web site, supposedly reserved for EEstor (http://www.eestor.us/), however today, instead of the usual 'Under Contruction' message, it appears that the web site is no longer viewable. Does anyone know whether this means that EEstor is no longer a candidate for having an energy storage solution, or does anyone know of any new information posted recently about this company?

    I'm using Firefox and right now it says "under construction."--in about five languages. :-\

    Whew, I am also able to see the 'under construction' msg again! I know I shouldn't get my hopes up too much, but I couldn't help it. I am just so excited about the possibilities this would open up.

    I also see the under construction sign. If EEStor produces the capacitors as has been rumored and Tesla incorporates them into the WhiteStar, the vehicle would be fantastic. We could be looking at quick charging, increased range and perhaps less cost for the battery pack resulting in a purchase price drop on the vehicle.

    The downside however is that some ultra-capacitors have a sharp self-discharge curve.
