Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Doing some more reading, those batteries you list still have a significantly lower energy density than petrolium. For starters, I think that measuring energy density in W/kg is misleading - the standard measure for that appears to be joules/kg. Even leaving that aside, they're still significantly inferior to gasoline. They provide 3000 joules/kilogram. Gasoline provides over 40 megajoules/kilogram.

So unless I'm missing some implication of their chosen metric, there's still a big gap here.
