I will care about a new battery once we can buy them for our flashlights. Otherwise I have seen too many rumors of soldi state batteries, graphite batteries, and whatever people can dream up type of battery.

They only matter to me once I can buy them at a reasonable price for my uses.

Wow, this is coming from CATL, which means it is actually fully legitimate.

Notwithstanding, CATL said that through breakthroughs in R&D, its first-generation sodium-ion batteries have reached 160 watt-hours/kilogram, a measure of energy density of energy, and should exceed 200 Wh/kg in coming generations.

Well, that is certainly very nice, especially considering that sodium-ion cells are much more tolerant of <0C charging and usually have slightly lower internal resistance.
