Venture backed startup has "game changing" battery technology - Hype or Hope?

I don't know much about the engineering behind this new technology but a Texas startup, EEstor, and its investors are claiming it will replace lithium ion batteries in everything from electric vehicles to laptop computers. Technology Review has a nice writeup on EEStor and the technology.

Judging by the comments posted to that article there seems to be plenty of debate among the geeks regarding the feasibility of the EEStor's ultracapacitor technology. I tried to decipher but alas, I am an MBA and not a PHD.
