50 Year Batteries

OK, I'm a skeptical of things like this and here's why......

1). It seems novel (not widespread) so it's like someone's selling an idea big time

2). Politicians are likely involved, and that often means that a few people are going to get very rich off of taxpayers (again) (Solyndra comes to mind)

Hopefully I'm totally wrong and better energy ideas really do come along.
