High-power LED flash: too good to be true?

A crowdfunded project for an LED flash unit is claiming light output equivalent to a Canon 580 EX II speedlite, with zero recycling time, high-rate multiple flash capability, and an internal battery capable of delivering 1000 full-power pops on a single charge.

If you have technical understanding of flash design and battery technology, I'd be interested in hearing your opinion of whether or not these claims are feasible.
