An excellent primer on the referenced subject matter. The Author does a splendid job of thoroughly explaining the entire enterprise in interesting, informative, and fascinating fashion. The piece is replete with outstanding detail, context, and the included video enlivens the entire story. The Author's informed opinion adds weight and the requisite balance to the article. An indubitably worthwhile read. Five stars!

A fantastic article detailing this incredible energy storage innovation. This invention, although perhaps less viable than existing lithium-ion batteries, gave me renewed hope in our sustainable energy future. It's such an interesting idea and I'm glad Quartz took the time to properly explore it, in a balanced way that doesn't claim this solution will somehow save the day. Very fun read!
