Lithium ion batteries are currently the preferred choice for electric cars. However, there are still concerns about range and recharge rate. Digital Quantum batteries might be able to outperform lithium ion batteries in both respects. At least, that's the meaning of the forward-looking statements made by the researchers. When we can buy an electric car that will drive as far, and recharge as fast as a gasoline car can be refuelled, and cost about the same, then we can retire the internal combustion engine. If Digital Quantum batteries are aiming in those directions, then we should develop them.
