Re: Musk Talks Batteries

We know that the batteries are the achilies heal with storage that kw/kg matters when lifting it to mars which is all the more reason to learn how to make even crude batteries from the easiest of obtainable materials until we can refine the materials to make a better quality means of power storage. Hand in hand goes power generation which is constrained by the same reason of getting it to mars.
