From interview with eestor CEO Richard Weir
"Go back and read what Lockheed Martin said about this. I think that's very exciting. They said two things. They said it works. And they didn't say it works with this or that caveat.... they just said it works."

Are you confident that their technology will offer a greater amount of energy and power density than batteries?
Yes, and at a fraction of the cost.

Do their caps hold 10x the energy at 1/10th the weight of a lead acid battery?

"And second, they said it could ramp up into a high volume production environment"

Is there a production plan for 2008?
Yes for EEStor. Their approach is when they start manufacturing these batteries, not just the cells, but also the package assembly, they will be in production. If you can get a visit to EEStor they’ll show you their process and everything they’ve got in place to support that. Assuming that everything comes together in terms of tests and qualifications and that sort of thing, they will be ready to ramp up very quickly, because of the nature if the architecture and scalability of what they are doing.

Why all the negative talk?? These guys are playing with the big boys now. Lets all just sit back and wait. They have stated 2008 and we are 1/2 way there. ZEN is ramping up an entire product line to be powered by this unit in 2009. I hope it comes to be at $1.40/liter. That is $6.50 a gallon in the old imperial system!!! OUCH!!!!

I believe EESTOR never said they were producing a Capacitor. My understanding is that it is a Capacitor Battery Hybrid. I suspect the energy is somehow stored in the ionized dielectric which is contained by a super efficient insulator. This is just a guess. I am sure L.M. read the Wiki page and studied dielectric saturation before claiming that it works.

 No.13  Kleiner Perkins
There are always skeptics. But even before lockheed, a place like Kleiner Perkins doesn't invest in a lot of charletons, these guys are amoung the top VCs of the last 40 years. They're not always right, but the fact they invested means lots of bright people thought it was possible. A company like Lockheed buying rights for US military apps helps support the idea that there could be a ZENN city car in 14-18 months

 No.14  News just in
I think David (2 comments ago) is right. <a href="">Here</a>'s the latest news
"Sometime over the next several weeks, a privately held and ultra-secretive company named EEStor Inc., based in Cedar Park, Tex., is expected to release the results of independent third-party testing of its electrical energy storage unit..."
"EEStor has said it expects its technology to be commercially ready within six months."
"EEStor says its system, combining battery and ultracapacitor technology and based on modified barium titanate ceramic powder, could power a car for 400 kilometres with regular performance"

 No.15  home power applications
it's very interesting to watch what EEStor might come out with finally. if it were available to cars and to home-power enthusiasts, it could change things. one idea I'm exploring is a "keep what you generate, share what you save" version of distributed generation. the software will be available as open source, but the project is underway as a masters thesis, and you can see it here:

 No.17  that Premlis looks cool
I went to the site:

and saw a 60Ah 12V unit listed, but do you know where to buy them and how much they cost?

I believe Zenn first invested 1.3 million and then the balance of 2.5 million at a later date. If the technology was NG why would Zenn invest the additional money!?
