Battery Reconditioning - Batteries that had no problem at 80° produce only 50% power at 0°! Bad timing since engines are harder to start in winter & call for extra battery power! Look for: Cold Cranking Amps Reserve Capacity Powerframe Grid Technology –more durable & corrosion-resistant & better electrical flow. I use Powerframe Grid Technology batteries available AdvanceAutoParts & Carquest in my cars. Go to www.Powerframe.com; click on “Where to Buy”; bring coupon to @AdvanceAuto or
Flow Battery Breakthrough May Boost Green Energy Storage (Video)
New "Instantly Rechargeable" Battery Deals a Fatal Blow to Fossil Fuels. Purdue researchers have developed a flow battery that would allow electric cars to be recharged instantly at stations like conventional cars are.
Vanadium-Flow Batteries: The Energy Storage Breakthrough We've Needed
V-flow batteries are fully containerized, nonflammable, reusable batteries, using 100% of the energy stored. Presently, the largest V-flow battery is a 2MW/8MWh installed at the SnoPUD Everett Substation in Washington State, but the V-flow battery system being constructed in Sicily will be 24MW/96MWh.

Researchers at ETH Zurich and IBM Research Zurich have built a tiny redox flow battery. This means that future computer chip stacks—in which individual chips are stacked like pancakes to save space and energy—could be .
