I read the article and it appears at this point to be experimental at best.

So far, the current lithium-ion batteries are still the best in a small package with good power availability.

Sigh.

There are lots of articles talking about new batteries and technologies.  For example here's one talking about sugar http://hardware.slashdot.org/story/14/01/26/1735236/powering-phones-pcs-using-sugar

and sulphur http://hardware.slashdot.org/story/13/06/06/0248236/new-all-solid-sulfur-based-battery-outperforms-lithium-ion

and heaps more such as https://encrypted.google.com/#q=new+advances+in+battery+technology&revid=159151264

Talking is the operative word.

But no, there's nothing new on the market place at present replacing our present crop of lithium based batteries.
