StoreDots Bio-Organic Battery Tech Can Charge From Flat To Full In 30 Seconds | TechCrunch Would this technology be usable for cars ? I keep on wondering whether now's still a good time to build a giga lithium-ion battery factory... new, innovative technologies for batteries are appearing at a super high rate... I know Musk is an exceptionally revolutionary thinker, not afraid of abandoning what we all know and venturing on completely new grounds, but if he spends billions (of investors' money) on such a lithium-ion battery factory and after a few years this technology becomes obsolete, will he still be able to 'admit' this and switch to the new technology ? I suppose that all the money and resources will be 100% wasted, since I don't suppose a transition to a completely new technology will be straightforward... Thoughts ? Any physicists / experts on the matter ?
