We're not far off. Give it a few more years.
Poor man's cold fusion is around the corner.
(Inadvertently, the breakthrough that will allow an interesting form of long term energy storage was stumbled on in 1993. Depending on how things go,
that will be figured out at some point soon-ish. Right around the era where the "impossible EM drive" is adequately scaled up, and the mechanism fully
What we'll be using soon for "batteries" isn't really a traditional cathode/anode differential system. I just can't remember the specific scientist
that makes the breakthrough, but it's someone involved with carbon polymer chemistry. They aren't trying to store energy, they're tackling a different
issue entirely, and Teflon their way into the successor of Lithium Ion.
EDIT: Or all of this is bs, I'm making up. OP's post is interesting stuff. I like the general idea, but I'd wager it's going to get a lot better when
they figure out how to do the same thing with a different material.
