"Batteries made with sulfur could be cheaper, greener and hold more energy"

I note the "could be".

Thundersky once put out a spec sheet for 600Ah lithium sulfur cells that weighed the same as current generation 200Ah lifepo4 cells.

This was at least 6 years ago. They must not have got them to work, as it still has yet to enter production.

It's the same old thing, until mere mortals can buy a battery, it doesn't exist.

What is Sulfur? Is it Sulphur?

Perhaps the next step would be Aluminium Sulphur batteries?

Sulfur is how a chemist spells sulphur because English is a stupid language and no one agrees on anything (especially stubborn Americans)

I know what you mean but I was quoting the article's title, as written. Are we in grrrr aggreance? Even this horrid word was on the news today. One bad word is worth two in the bush.

Oh well, Every Lab I worked in it was either Sulphur or Schwefel. And this is the ABC not the NBC, a bit said.
