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.

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.
