EEStor Bunny Visits Lockheed

In it's April 2009 employee newsletter, Lockheed Martin has reiterated support for EEStor Inc.'s technology. They are reporting it as having an energy density that is 100X of lead acid.

"Looking ahead, the MFC Power

Management team plans to incorporate

new battery technologies into its products

as they become available. It has

partnered with EEStor, a small company

that has patented ultra-capacitor technology

that MFC believes could be a

game-changing technology in the power

management field. EEStor technology

could provide 10 times the energy density

of lead acid batteries at 1/10th the

weight and volume."

If the 100x can be confirmed, that is a super galactic humongous deal.

100x puts EESUs at a *HIGHER* energy density, in both weight and volume, than the *NET* value of gasoline, as used in today's fairly in-efficient ICE (Internal Combustion Engines).

Meaning an equivalent EESU would weigh less (~1/2) and have a smaller volume (~1/5) than the equivalent gasoline.

Thus a 10 gallon tank of gasoline for a 30 MPG car would shrink from ~65 pounds for the gasoline to ~30 pounds of EESU. And the 10 gallons of volume would shrink to ~2 gallons of EESU volume.

How to say beyond a world changing paradigm?
