Zinc - performance than Li-ion but at a cost more like lead-acid.

Partnered with the US Navy... I hope this works out.

I imagine that if I were building the worlds largest lithium ion battery plant this would cause me some discomfort...

I wonder if/when they'll come to market?

Lots of "will"s there. Very little in the present tense. I'll believe it when I see it

"EnZinc CEO Michael Burz told Ars that the company plans to have a battery ready for production by the end of 2019."
