(You need to be a subscriber to see the full article). The article discusses how the use of sulfur is advantageous to Lithium ion batteries in terms of capacity (10x theorical improvement in capacity but for practical reasons the number is in the 5 to 6x range), what were the technical difficulties with the use of sulfur, and the workarounds which have been discovered. It looks like the technology is ready and may come to us soon !
