I like to read Sci-Fi so will wait until we create capacitor type energy storage methods.

Not battery type storage methods.

You're an old guy and still believe in magic? I have in my basement a glass cylinder with a ceramic lid with a hole in the top. It's an original Thomas Edison R.S. Signal wet cell battery used for powering telegraphs. For the past 150 years, it's a straight line development from that glass cylinder to today's LiOn batteries. Wouldn't the superiority of capacitor storage emerge somewhere in that time?

Different demands, maybe? A capacitor in theory might charge a whole lot faster than a battery. That hasn't ever really been the goal of battery R&D in the face of trying to get more juice in a smaller space/weight.

Jack,

Back when I was a kid, about early spring of '66, the RR's still had some track telephone lines and out-house sized shacks with batteries like you are talking about in them sitting on a flat board on the floor.

Big tall thick walled open-top rect. glass jars with acid and lead plates in them to power their telephone lines.

I helped the Foreman by carrying the telephone wire clip-on pole and crank phone that he used to get track time from the dispatcher every so often so he would know when to clear the tracks of the tie gang machines when a through train was coming.

Boy, I haven't thought about this in years..
