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.
