I haven't ever seen mention of work by www.mphasetech.com This looks like they will have a real product with in a year.
mPhase/AlwaysReady to Demo Breakthrough Battery Technology
Tuesday February 26, 2:15 pm ET
First Ever Public Demo on April 3rd, 2008
LITTLE FALLS, NJ--(MARKET WIRE)--Feb 26, 2008 -- mPhase/Always Ready, Inc. (OTC BB:XDSL.OB - News) announced today that it will be demonstrating for the first time to the public its breakthrough battery technology. A live demonstration will be taking place on Thursday, April 3rd, 2008 at 9:00 am at AJ Maxwell's 57 W. 48th Street in New York City. All interested parties are welcome.
The mPhase/Always Ready battery is based on a patented electrowetting phenomenon which allows for a potentially infinite shelf life by mixing "Power on Command." The battery has recently been successfully field tested by the U.S. Army.
Other advantages of the battery include:
-- Green (environmentally friendly)
-- Potentially infinite shelf life
-- Lower Manufacturing cost
-- Power Management functionality
-- Faster ramp to power
-- Flexible arrayed configurations
-- Versatile packaging

Because nanotechnology, in some cases is an extremely fine series of materials, that can be made to fit to order, battery densities, in uniformity, can be made to hold a higher per area charge.
This means that chargings of this type of battery would last longer.
The new problem with this type of technology would be, catastrophic discharging, and or explosions.
If your per area charge is so great, and in possible scenario, greater than what that structure could hold, then one of two actions might occur.
One, the battery could through whatever means rapidly discharge all of its current.This might be to air as a dielectric or other sources of drain?
Two, the internal structures of the holding charge battery, could become either suseptable to influences by outside charges within the electron sea. Or an archetype in manufacture could cause a degrading overload per area of structure, the charge race to that weakened area and the battery explode.
Already,(if you enter the search words, exploding cell phones), cell phones all by themselves in certain situations have exploded.
In the final analysis, what you doing is placing a superior electrical charge, in a smaller but has to be more refined structure, so potential chaosian and or other forms of predictive physics have to be played to their possible endings?

Wow, I'm glad you brought this up Phillip. Ive never heard of phones exploding before. And more charge would mean more damage.http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6569187/

I stand corrected, as some of the battery components shown, are compartmentalized.
Meaning they stack charged cells, so that they are not one large piece.
