They also I think still have perk of being able to output burst power, while remaining non-exploded. Reason why traditional flash for mirorless or DSLR still use older type rechargeable batteries.This I can get onboard with. NiMH batteries, while only holding 80% the energy density, are safer by far!
Reason why EVs are still no go is same as hundred years ago. Too heavy, not enough capacity, slow to recharge.
They can push it as much as they want, but unless someone makes a lot better battery (major breakthrough required), or real fuel cell, its just destined to fail.
Not mentioning, that if in theory everyone moved to EV, we would need about 6x times more electricity than we have now. And while I would definitely appreciate development in nuclear energy, this will take decades at minimum. And serious upgrades to power grids.
And it makes for one gigantic problem. When everything runs on electricity, blackout becomes apocalypse. Even big solar storm could plunge such society back to medieval ages, if not stone one..
