In a way, the technological advancement of the modern age has been astonishing. We have conquered worlds unknown and are on the verge of yet more breathtaking discoveries. Yet we’re still saddled with battery technology that belong with Barney Rubble and cohorts.

Now comes news that researchers out of Peoria, er, the Argonne National Laboratory in Argonne, IL, “have developed composite battery materials that can make such batteries both safer and longer lived, while increasing their capacity to store energy by 30 percent.”

All I can say is: about time!
