Firefly batteries inching closer to deployment

Still interested in the Oasis batteries from Firefly Energy? As far as we know, the summer release date is still on, especially with all that venture funding. Firefly has figured out how to deal with the corrosion problem that plagued standard lead acids by swapping out the standard lead grid in the batteries withthe Microcell™ composite graphite foam grid. It's this grid that really makes the battery so exciting to a lot of EV enthusiasts, and has been on our radar at least since we spoke with Firefly's co-founder Mil Ovan back in late 2006. Now, Tech Blorge reminds us about the battery and how it will be coming first to heavy trucks, but - hopefully sooner rather than later - for PHEVs and electric cars as well.
