Not the video I wanted but you get the idea. ESS makes iron/saltwater flow batteries that go into 40' shipping containers. Thus offering 50 kilowatts of energy. "Enough to supply a block for four hours." Plus the price competes with lithium!

Simply built, the parts are available at Home Depot. Did I mention that the price competes with lithium?
