New York Times on A123Systems batteries
The New York Times takes a look at A123, from their birth in 2002 trying to develop a technology using nano-particles that would be sprayed on to a device and self-assemble into a battery (which proved to be unworkable) to their current lithium iron-phosphate chemistry. So far the only production contracts A123 has are to supply batteries for Black&Decker/DeWalt power tools, and the GM deal is the first publicly-acknowledged automotive deal.
