Popular Science editor and scribe Seth Fletcher discusses his new book, Bottled Lightning, the story of the lithium battery revolution that has made laptops, iPhones, and Chevy Volts all a reality. Fletcher takes us from the esteemed labs of MIT and Stanford, to the remote salt flats of Bolivia, to the boardrooms of General Motors, to give us every angle of this important scientific story, which has implications for everything from the health of our economy and our environment, to shifting geopolitical relations.
