The sad part is anyone who passed high school chemistry should be able to figure out that these battery claims are BS. I don't know how much education sucks these days, but 20-25 years ago we learned how to calculate the reaction energies of various electro-chemical reactions, in other words, battery chemistries. Once you have that number you can find the theoretical maximum energy density of the battery which gives the lower limit on the size & mass of the required battery pack for a given capacity.

The last time I checked the numbers, we're at a bit over half the theoretical max for li-ion chemistries, which makes Tesla's claims bull****.
