Well very little info on specs efficiency (guessing it varies good bit on input and output), longevity, self discharge, etc...

Looks like they have l00 kWh model rotomolded nd perhaps ready to go.

Love to  know more,  

Zinc-air battery being deployed in New York aims for extremely low $45/kWh cost

    I can see  l00 kWh battery at $4500 that is long lived putting lots of California in the 'cost effective' range for off grid living...

    ...also  creating   more problems with electrical infrastructure cost spread among few subscribers  yet further increasing electrical  costs.

    This "painful period of transition" is not addressed often enough!
    I always have more questions than answers. That's the nature of life.

    Glad to see field test of it.  
    Sure we'll here if it works out...
    ...failures will be quietly buried in field.
