5.0 out of 5 stars Best Book I've Read on the Battery Industry, June 17, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bottled Lightning: Superbatteries, Electric Cars, and the New Lithium Economy (Hardcover)
Just finished the book--Bottled Lightning. Outstanding! I have been in the battery business for 50 years (Delco/Delphi) and have never seen a better book on the industry. I am a personal friend of Bob Hamlen, but didn't know his early history with lithium battery development until reading the book. I managed the GM/Delco Remy lithium battery program in the late 80s and 90s which was a partnership with Valence Technologies. Personnel of this team evolved into EnerDel and Altairnano. I know there was always concern for the availability of lithium and this book deals with this issue very competently. The discussion of the author's travels to the lithium deposits in Nevada, Chile and Bolivia was amazing. For anyone in the battery industry, the book is a must and the author's writing style makes the book an enjoyable read for everyone.
