Title: Sodium Iron Batteries.
Post by: desperate on February 27, 2012, 03:16:04 PM
My brother in law stayed with us over the weekend, he was telling me about one of his colleagues at CMU who is developing a production line for these batteries. Apparently the excitement around this project is considerable.

Bro in law E-Mailed them asking, "Do you need UK distributors?"

Nothing ventured nothing gained eh.

It seems that they last well but with reduced capacity.   I suppose that is just  allowed for in  the particular application.    Sodium Sulphur  batteries at high temperatures  still seem to be the choice for large scale battery storage, 8992%  storage efficiency and over ten years life at near full capacity.

Things are progressing well, Bro in law thinks we (Navitron)  and off gridders may be of some interest to Jay whitacre.

Sounds promising indeed Desp,
                             They seem to be quite happy about the whole thing and maybe they have a winner.Its about time.A couple of ton of those babies would suit me down to the ground.
