And here I was hoping to see ugly and buggy customized phones sometime this year. Project Ara, doing "Coming Soon" even better than Microsoft.

I'd hate to rain on Solid Energy's parade-in fact I want to encourage them, the battery comparison image above is a bit exaggertated. You are comparing a single battery cell with no add on to other battery packs which contains protect circuit boards, battery management system, and other extras that makes them bigger physically.

I also don't think that this tech will be limited to Project Ara devices. When improved batteries are developed, all device manufacturers will use them.

It is a due time for Intel to go into energy storage business and make some nano-scale battery tech.

I'm eager to see the types of pricing manufacturer are going to want for Project Ara components.. I have a feeling they're going to be pricey.

Finally useful & ready for commercial use battery tech! I don't know about pricing but it will be a must have for phone makers pushing ridiculous display resolutions on they big phablets.

The million dollar question though is how spectacular do these batteries explode when overheated or punctured?

One of the biggest limitations for battery capacity is keeping them safe. The greater their storage density, the more spectacular they explode if they overheat or get punctured.

I assume they have a plan though seeing as automotive batteries in particular have to be crash resistant.
