  •  I can see industural uses... (15+ / 0-)

    For instance, replacing UPS Sealed Lead Acied batteries would be a good thing.  They are heavy, have a limited life and tend to wear out at inopportune times.  They are used not just to protect important telecommunications equipment like keeping cell towers running when the power goes out but to keep business telephone systems running for 30 or more minutes when the power goes out.  I would not be surprised if hospitals use them to provide battery backup on medical equipment.  

    I don't doubt for a moment that it could be a very lucrative market and one established there, could move to car batteries and batteries for mobile electronics.  

    Under capitalism man exploits man, under communism the roles are reversed.
