Yeah the technology is nothing new, they've been in consumer electronics for quite a while... Putting it together into a bike battery is new...

And after reading the whole page, I found this:

Lithium batteries are the answer, but there are two main types. These lithium ion polymer batteries are different than the dangerous lithium (post & chemical) batteries. They are a "foam-like" nano technology material that holds much more power density but cannot catch fire and are far safer than other batteries

Li Poly batteries CAN and DO catch fire, even EXPLODE if over-charged or discharged too quickly (ie. a short)!!! I would not trust them under high draw applications, especially ones that I put between my legs!

I think the PC controlling the charge and discharge thing that Matt talks about is to fix the exploding problem. I have been talking to ex-military guy about these and he was saying the same thing about exploding.

I would bet that if Matt Hotch is using these in his bikes... they are fine!

You did watch the vid right?

Yeah, the video was pretty impressive... And I am sure that there are checks and balances in place to avoid meltdown, but to claim that this chemistry does not catch fire or explode is just plain false... Not to mention, if something goes wrong with those checks and balances, it could be VERY serious.

Holy Crap that battery is sweet. I'm looking for a new battery but that damn thing would cost as much as my bike.

I spoke to some military guys on another site and they knew about them. Even the retired back as civilian contractors...
