EEStor gets patent for EESU, we get some details
We'll leave it up to you if you want to read through the whole document, but here are a few salient points for your consideration. The EEStor EESU would weigh just 282-pounds, yet would carry as much juice as the lithium ion battery pack that's currently in use by Tesla Motors for its Roadster. Just as much power but nearly four-times lighter? That's impressive. Even better, EEStor claims that its EESU's performance never degrades with use and would potentially last forever. Great. We'll take two, and we're not the only ones excited. Click past the break for more.
