RX...we had a discussion on firefly in the not too distant past you may want to do a search on. Calder wrote an article on them also and there is a link in that thread. The 107ah group 31 lets you charge at 300amps and use the battery to DEAD FLAT 700 cycles!! Very exiting technology IF it works...all claims at this point.
I would also note that it will be a while before anyone can buy one as an individual:
"Firefly's marketing strategy is to target those areas of greatest need first. Our first batteries are being developed for specialized applications, working with large organizations like Husqvarna and the U.S. Army. We're in discussions with several large companies in the Automotive industry, and hope to be making batteries for this important application. We have no plans however to offer individual batteries to the general public for at least the next two years."
