    I've been trying to find some info on a lead cobalt battery that apparently powered some early EV's in the 60's and 70's and is supposedly still undergoing development. Here's a link to the same question in another forum:
    Peak Oil News & Message Boards >> Forums >> Energy Technology >> Lead Cobalt Battery?
    It seems to have some similarities to the Firefly battery, (foam core).
    I thought I'd see if anyone here has more information.

    Yeah, I was looking for some more recent information. I'm never too impressed with any announcement from ZAP.:rolleyes:
    Any word on their Silver Volt car, or battery availability?
