LINK: Hermes Battery Takes Flight In Drones | UAV Expert News

From Article:

"A Massachusetts-based startup, SolidEnergy Systems, has pulled off what seems to be the impossible, selling lithium-metal batteries commercially. The company has reportedly developed a battery that “is half the weight and has twice the energy density of current lithium-ion batteries”. Meet Hermes™.

The Hermes™ cell outperforms its Li-ion counterpart in three areas, HALE (High Altitude Long Endurance) vehicles, VTOL (Vertical take-off and landing) flying transportation, and a wide range of consumer drones.

HALE aircraft can now operate during winter, over a wider latitude, and stay at a higher altitude at night, far above turbulent weather and clouds. VTOL aircrafts can carry a greater payload and travel greater distances, making electric air transportation a reality. Consumer drones can fly farther and carry a greater payload, achieving greater utility while staying below registration weight limit".
