    New Battery for Tesla

    Tesla will be offering a new battery pack for the Tesla Roadster that will increase the range from the current ~245 miles per charge to a much increased ~400 miles per charge. The new chemistry is significantly more heat resistant as well. No mention of any specifics...such as cost or warranties.
    This is the most recent lithium battery chemistry upgrade available for the masses and there are several more generations to come that are on the lab benches in testing. Some of the most tantalizing could result in 4 times the current capacity (a 1600 mile range?). There have been 28 new supercharging stations added recently that bring the count to about 130 across the US and anyone who buys a Tesla currently (no pun intended) gets free 'fuel' for the car.

    The bar has been raised again.
