Batteries are changing and I'm glad to see talk of it trickling down to our little packs. Solid state lithium ion batteries have been in development for 4 or more years; 2016 brought a lot of movement by many large universities to get in on this. Seems slow going, but I guess getting the chemistry right, and accounting for safety is a tough task.

Exciting times indeed! Thanks for posting the link. Adding to your post:

I'm surprised there are not more pack repair, upgrade, or resell of recondition/refurbish places online for all the different types of available ebike battery packs? Looks like it would cost less to to replace or upgrade the 18650 cells compared to purchasing a new battery pack for +$500.
