Just ran across a story about a new battery technology, sounds promising though its probably several years away from the hobby market.

Here is a clipping from an article
"It also says its technology more than doubles the energy density of lithium-ion batteries in most portable computer and mobile gadgets today, but could be produced at one-eighth the cost."

Bonus: It charges in 4 -5 minutes

Interesting...

One down side is that as a capacitor discharges the voltage drops, so you need a controller that can handle this. I'd expect that to increase the size/weight/cost of the controller.
